Four police officers were killed and another 10 shot in downtown Dallas after a pair of snipers unloaded fire from a nearby parking garage, reports say.
“Tonight it appears that two snipers shot ten police officers from elevated positions during the protest/rally,” Brown wrote in a statement. “Three officers are deceased, two are in surgery and three are in critical condition. An intensive search for suspects is currently underway. No suspects are in custody at this time.”
One suspect have been captured according to reports and another is still at large. Sources have not confirmed that the person was the shooter.
A new conference is forthcoming.
The rally was peaceful and the vast majority of those active in it were not aggressive or violent to police, sources with AllHipHop said.
The onslaught comes as a pair of Black men were slain by officers in Baton Rouge and Falcon Heights, just outside of Minneapolis.
