Nov 21, 2017

A man died and two Davenport police officers were injured in a weekend shooting. 

The Scott County Sheriff's Office says 26-year-old Matthew Tobin was killed in the shooting, which occurred after officers responded about 5 a.m. Sunday to a burglary report.

Investigators say Tobin exchanged gunfire with the officers, identified as Justin King and Brenda Waline. Both officers were taken to a Davenport hospital with non-life threatening injuries. King suffered a gunshot wound to the head.

Tobin was pronounced dead at the scene.

King has been a Davenport office since 2012, and Waline has worked in the department since 1999.
