Family remembers young parents found shot dead in their Phoenix home

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) – An up-and-coming young couple, is how Cameron Brown’s mom describes her son and his fiancée, Asya Ribble. After meeting in elementary school and dating for about seven years, Brown and Ribble had two children together. On Sunday, the couple were found shot and killed inside their home. “There was another lady who came out with a kid, probably around 6 or 7,” a neighbor told Arizona’s Family.

Thankfully, Brown’s mom tells us the kids are doing well surrounded by family. “Knowing what happened in there is just awful,” a neighbor said. Those who live in the area say knowing the children were inside haunts the community. “These kids who don’t grow up without parents and have to go through this the rest of their lives. I mean no kid should have to go through that. This is madness,” said David Hubbard, who lives nearby.

On Tuesday, the front door of the house still had marks where detectives had collected evidence. But we now know that police were looking for Leroy Malone, who was found in Dodge City, Kansas, where deputies shot and killed him. A woman who was with Malone was also shot and taken to hospital in critical condition. Three law enforcement officers were also injured in the shooting. “Crazy is the only word. I mean, it’s crazy,” Hubbard said of the shooting Malone was involved in. But the family says Brown and Ribble’s fatal shooting was not random, and instead say he was dating Ribble’s sister.

If you want to help the family, they have created this GoFundMe account to help with funeral expenses and the adoption of Brown and Ribble’s two children.

Malone had a lengthy criminal record dating back to 2002. He faced charges in Maricopa and Navajo counties, including armed robbery and aggravated assault. On Tuesday, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation provided an update on the police officers injured. A Ford County deputy underwent surgery and is in good condition. A Clark County Sheriff’s Deputy and a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper are both now home recovering from their injuries. Investigators say the woman with Malone continues to be treated for serious injuries.
