Dallas Sniper Killed 5 Police Officers, Injured 7 During Protests

Dallas snipers killed five officers during protests against police in downtown. Dallas’ Mayor Mike Rawlings reports 12 officers and 2 civilians were shot. President Barack Obama, who is in Warsaw, Poland, said his team is keeping him updated. “We still don’t know all the facts, we do know there’s been a vicious, calculated and despicable act on law enforcement,” Obama said.

The gunfire started Thursday night as protestors marched against the shooting deaths of two African-American men by police in Louisiana and Minnesota. National news outlets are reporting this was the deadliest single attack on law enforcement since the 9/11 terror attacks, when 72 officers died.

Authorities have reported that four suspects involved in a standoff with police have been killed.
