MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) - Two Minneapolis Police officers are recovering Saturday after being shot while trying to stop a man suspected of burglary.

The pursuit led officers to a home at 27th Street and Bryant Avenue Friday afternoon. After a car chase with police, 22-year-old Terrance Franklin bailed from his vehicle and ran into a nearby home to hide.

Police say officers followed Franklin into the home, where he attacked them and a police dog.

According to authorities, it is unclear what happened during the struggle that resulted in Franklin grabbing a MP5 submachine gun from one of the officers. In the aftermath, Officers Michael Meath and Ricardo Muro where shot, and Franklin was killed.

Both officers are currently in satisfactory condition.
