Herold said police began receiving calls about shots fired and a call about a person with a “patrol rifle” at 2:30 p.m.

Talley was one of the first officers at the scene and was fatally shot.

“This is a very complex investigation that will take no less than five days to complete,” Herold said at a news conference.

CNN cited an unnamed senior law enforcement source as saying the weapon used in the shooting was an AR-15-style rifle.
