Snipers Kill Five Dallas Police; Obama Calls It ‘Despicable’ Attack (Videos)


Snipers operating from rooftops in Dallas killed five police officers and wounded six more in a coordinated attack during one of several protests across the country against the killing of two black men by police this week.

At this posting, reports say 5 Dallas officers are dead, 7 others wounded. Two civilians wounded. Latest reports say 1 shooter is dead and 3 suspects in custody. 

Police described Thursday night’s ambush as carefully planned and executed and said they had taken three people into custody before a fourth died. Dallas-based media said the suspect died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound after a standoff that extended into Friday morning.

The fourth suspect exchanged gunfire with police during the standoff at a downtown garage and warned of placing bombs throughout the city. Police have not yet confirmed his death.
