The front page of Friday morning’s Dallas Morning News: “AMBUSH”
Three Dallas police officers and one DART officer have been killed and several others were injured after shots were fired in downtown Dallas during a rally and march Thursday night.
Dallas police Chief David Brown said about 8:58 p.m., at least two snipers shot 11 officers and one civilian from elevated positions during the rally in downtown.
Two officers were in surgery earlier in the night and three were in critical condition, police said.
Three other DART officers were wounded but their injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, said Morgan Lyons, a spokesman for DART.
The officers were shot “ambush style,” Brown said, with some shot in the back.
“Give our officers strength to catch these suspects and bring them to justice tonight,” he said.
