An initial statement issued to Twin Cities media indicated two officers had been injured. 

A follow-up statement clarified the injured law enforcement members were part of the Tri-City Tactical Team, which serves several communities in the southern Metro. 

Some stories have reported that BPD officers were injured, but it was individuals from our mutual aid partners who sustained minor injuries. We hope for their speedy recovery.

Last month, 35-year-old Ashley Dyrdale was federally indicted for providing the shooter, 38-year-old Shannon Gooden, with the firearm that used to kill the first responders. 

Gooden, who according to a BCA investigation took his own life during the standoff, was ineligible to possess firearms due to prior felony convictions, federal court documents say.
