A New Hampshire police officer was shot and injured on Monday while cameras caught the apparent scene of the shooting exploding during a live telecast.

The Boston Globe reported that the unidentified officer was listed in serious condition following the incident in Mill Pond Crossing, a neighborhood designed for residents ages 55 and over in the town of Brentwood.

Authorities in Rockingham County confirmed that multiple shots were fired at the residence, and that multiple law enforcement agencies were called in around 4:45 p.m. local time.

Just over an hour later, WCVB-TV captured footage of the home exploding while covering the incident live. The blast tore through the front portion of the home, which was already on fire. Nearby residents were briefly evacuated from the fire but eventually allowed to return to their homes.

Watch WCVB’s report from the scene, as aired on Monday, below.
