A man opened fire on police attending a swearing-in ceremony for new officers in New Hope, Minnesota, on Monday night.
Two officers were shot before police returned fire, killing the man. The officers are expected to survive.
The shooting happened right after two newly sworn-in officers left the chambers. It is not known if the two officers who were shot were newly sworn-in.
As a city council member began a discussion of a resolution, a man with a handgun began firing, said Hennepin County Chief Deputy Mike Carlson.
Officials don’t yet know why the man targeted officers. His name hasn’t been released.
The city council records their meetings and video cameras captured the sound of the gunshots, according to CNN.
