A coincidence is a remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances that have no apparent causal connection with one another. The perception of remarkable coincidences may lead to supernatural, occult, or paranormal claims. Or it may lead to belief in fatalism, which is a doctrine that events will happen in the exact manner of a predetermined plan.

From a statistical perspective, coincidences are inevitable and often less remarkable than they may appear intuitively. An example is the birthday problem, which shows that the probability of two persons having the same birthday already exceeds 50% in a group of only 23 persons.1

Something that doesn't connect between A and B, and doesn't appear to relate between the two, if it does at all.
It doesn't seem to be any coincidence that both officers involved in Minneapolis area killings were senior officers and not newcomers. Perhaps someone (benefitted from) wanted newcomers to be given more of a chance than the old school officers, to be thought by the public to be safer and somehow more trustworthy.
