MORE ON DALLAS: 3 Police Officers Dead After Shooting in Downtown Dallas.
Three officers are dead, and at least seven others are injured in downtown Dallas Thursday, Dallas Police Chief David Brown says.
The entire statement follows:
“Tonight it appears that two snipers shot ten police officers from elevated positions during the protest/rally. 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. We ask that any citizen with information regarding the shootings tonight call 214-671-3482.
We will provide more information once it is available. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers tonight.”
Gunshots rang out following a protest and rally held over police shootings in other parts of the U.S.
The shootings took place as a rally and march in downtown was ending. The rally was held to show solidarity with communities affected by officer-involved shootings this week in Louisiana and Minnesota.
1968 sucked the first time around.
