Officers rushed to the campus and in the video, they can be seen entering the school and searching through some of the classrooms before moving through the hallways. They eventually made their way up the stairs, where the shooter was located.
Gunshots can be heard in the video, so the officers made their way to that direction.
Four initial shots were fired and the shooter fell to the ground. Officers fired an additional four shots at that time.
In the video, officers are repeatedly telling the shooter to stop moving and “get your hand away from the gun” before they announced the suspect was down and removed the gun.
The two officers that fired on the shooter were Officer Rex Engelbert, a four-year MNPD veteran, and Officer Michael Collazo, a nine-year MNPD veteran, officials said.
Police announced six people, three nine-year-old’s and three adults, were killed at the hands of the active shooter.
