A man was killed in Minnesota on Monday after he opened fire on two police officers after a swearing-in ceremony at New Hope city hall.
The shooter, who has not yet been named, was fatally shot after exchanging fire with other officers at the scene, Reuters reports.
The shoot-out occurred after the wounded two officers, who had just been sworn-in, left the chambers. They have also not been identified but are in good condition and are expected to survive.
In a video of the council meeting, a series of gunshots can be heard followed by council member John Elder urging everyone to “get down.”
Elder, who used to work for the local police department, can be seen holding a handgun as he takes cover behind the desk.
No one inside the meeting was hurt, and authorities say they don’t know why the gunman opened fire.
