DALLAS -- Dallas police say four officers were shot and killed, and seven others wounded by snipers during a protest Thursday night against recent deadly police shootings. The slain officers included three Dallas PD officers and one officer with DART, the local transportation system. Several other officers were in critical condition.
Two snipers shot down at the officers from an "elevated position," Dallas police chief David Brown said in a statement. He raised the question of how the snipers knew the route of the protest in order to position themselves.
"They planned to injure and kill as many law enforcement officers as they could," Chief Brown said.
Dallas police conducted a massive mobilization in the downtown after the shootings, creating a massive crime scene. Buses and public transportation was shut down, stranding hundreds of people in downtown Dallas.
Early Friday, Chief Brown said that police were still in negotiations with a man with whom they exchanged gunfire in a parking garage. That man said "the end is coming" and that he wanted to hurt police. The man also said there were bombs scattered in the downtown. The police bomb squad has been called to handle at least one suspicious package.
