In a statement to PEOPLE on Friday, Hacienda HealthCare spokesman David Leibowitz said the organization, which runs the facility, was cooperating with law enforcement but declined to divulge the exact nature of the underlying incident.

Gov. Doug Ducey's office has called the situation "deeply troubling".

Alejandro Benally, chief of the San Carlos Apache Police Department, said that the matter is under the jurisdiction of the Phoenix Police Department and that his department would assist the department in any way possible.
