2 police officers and medic killed

Two police officers and a medical first responder were fatally shot early Sunday while responding to a domestic abuse call in Burnsville, Minnesota, authorities said.

Brian Peters, executive director of the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association Executive Director, confirmed the deaths, saying the law enforcement community was "heartbroken."

"We’re just devastated at the horrific loss," he said in a statement. "These heroes leave behind loved ones and a community who will forever remember their bravery and dedication to keeping Minnesotans safe."

The Minneapolis Star Tribune, citing local law enforcement officials, said a third police officer was wounded. The medical responder was shot while trying to help an officer, the Star said.  A law enforcement source told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that police were called to a residence on a domestic incident when the gunfire erupted.
