A New Hampshire home exploded on live TV Monday after a police officer was fatally shot when he responded to a domestic dispute.

Police Officer Stephen Arkell, 48, was shot when he answered a domestic dispute call in a neighborhood restricted to residents 55 and older, The Boston Globe reports.

Another officer was driven away by gunfire. About an hour later the house burst into flames, but firefighters were kept away from the scene. An explosion then rocked the house, and it was leveled within an hour.

The 85-year-old homeowner’s son, Michael Nolan, is suspected of shooting the officer and starting the fire, and is presumed dead.

Local ABC affiliate WCVB broadcast the fire and explosion live.
