Police Officers Shot After Swearing-In Ceremony
Two police officers were shot after leaving a police swearing-in ceremony during a city council meeting in Minneapolis.
Heather Childers reported on "Happening Now" that a gunman opened fire on officers who were leaving the meeting.
Fox News reported:
Hennepin County Sheriff's Office chief deputy Mike Carlson said the shooting happened at around 7:15 p.m. local time. The newly sworn-in officers and others were leaving the New Hope city council chambers when they encountered a man armed with a "long gun," Carlson said at a news conference.
The man opened fire and struck two New Hope police officers, Carlson said. Other officers immediately returned fire, killing the gunman, he said. It was not immediately clear whether the wounded officers had just been sworn in or were veterans of the force.
Carlson said the officers are in good condition and expected to survive.
Childers added that police do not have a motive yet and have not announced the identity of the gunman.
