  • Man opens fire on police during Minnesota city council meeting

    (CNN)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.

    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.

    "Get down! Get down! Everybody get down!," a city council member is heard saying.

    "Somebody got shot!" another says.

    The New Hope City Hall is across the street from a retirement home.

    Soon after the shooting, about 30 police cars descended on the scene. Officers looked through windows of parked cars to make sure there wasn't a second suspect.

    "To have it happen right across the street from our home, with police officers in parking lots with drawn guns, it's scary, very scary," resident Linda Townsend told CNN affiliate WCCO.
    Stay safe out there...

    Notice the Councilman to the left of the screen pulling his gun? I happened to be watching the video while my wife was watching the Today Show which showed portions of the same video. I noticed that the video shown by the Today Show you could not tell that the Councilman to the left had a gun.

        Our city council has a deputy sheriff as the mayor, and 2 retired PD officers as councilors..................

              I applaud the balls on the Councilman.

              Wishing the injured officers a speedy recovery, and the shooter to rot in Hell.

                    Funny how this gets little to no attention from the media, but if a Officer kills a guy whose shooting at him, s**t hits the fan.
