“Terrible news from Burnsville,” Minnesota Governor Tim Walz wrote in a Facebook post.

“While responding to a call from a family in distress, two police officers and a firefighter lost their lives and other officers were injured.

My heart goes out to their families today and the entire state of Minnesota stands with Burnsville,” Walz further wrote.
