Reports continue to stream in that multiple shooters, including two snipers, shot eleven police officers in connection with a peaceful “Black Live Matters” protest in Dallas, TX. The protest of 800 was winding down around 9 pm local time when the shooting commenced.
Five officers are now confirmed dead, with the remaining casualties in hospital in various states, reports NBC News Dallas.
Three suspects are apparently in custody. One additional suspect is now confirmed dead on scene in a parking garage of El Centro College in Downtown Dallas. All casualties were taken to Parkland and Baylor hospitals. ATF agents and others continue to look for bombs in the vicinity of El Centro.
The latest news on what is happening can be found on NBC Dallas.
All reports indicate that the police were very friendly with the protesters, which included numerous children with their parents.
If it is your wont, pray for the slain officers and the families they leave behind.
