Firefighters responded to the third-floor apartment at the Summit in Paradise Valley complex at 3001 N. Texas St. around 10:40 a.m. Tuesday when a water sprinkler triggered an alarm.Several neighbors tried to get into the apartment when they smelled smoke and saw flames, but the front door appeared to be blocked by a heavy object such as a sofa, they said.

Police have not disclosed any information about the weapon used in the stabbings or any potential reason for the tragedy.Some neighbors, however, said they found it odd that McCarrick parked her white Nissan Versa across three parking spaces in a carport Monday. The car remained there until Tuesday morning.Another neighbor said she saw McCarrick sitting alone in the car.
