A 38-year-old Arizona man has been arrested after allegedly shooting his wife in her bedroom and stuffing her body in a closet while their four young children were in the home. Mohammad Alkurdi was taken into custody Tuesday and charged with first-degree murder, authorities said.

According to a press release from the Chandler Police Department, officers were responding to a report of a domestic violence-related shooting at an apartment complex on March 14.

Upon arriving at the scene, first responders said they found a male suspect – later identified as Alkurdi – with his four children, all under the age of nine, outside the home. Police say they immediately arrested Alkurdi, a Jordanian citizen, without incident.

“Officials found the children’s mother with an apparent gunshot wound at the family home,” the press release said. “Life saving measures were attempted but were unsuccessful and she was pronounced dead at the scene.” Mohammad Alkurdi killed woman in front of children: Cops
