Eleven officers were shot and five have died after snipers took aim at police at a protest in Dallas Thursday, police reported. LeBron James tweeted about the shootings early Friday morning, condemning the violence.

“We are all hurting tonight. More violence is not the answer.” – Lebron James 

This is not James first time speaking out about violence and police brutality. Last season James made a silent protest on the NBA basketball court by wearing an “I can’t breathe” t-shirt in remembrance of Eric Garner – a victim of police brutality.
