DAVENPORT, Iowa — A man died and two Davenport police officers were injured in an early morning weekend shooting.

The Scott County sheriff’s office says 26-year-old Matthew Donald Tobin was killed in the shooting, which occurred after officers responded about 5:15 a.m. Sunday to a burglary report.

The sheriff’s office says 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.

The sheriff’s office is investigating the shooting.

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