    TX - Multiple Dallas Police Officers shot during downtown protest, 7/7/16 #2

    Dallas Police 'Ambush': 12 Officers Shot, 5 Killed During Protest
    by F. BRINLEY BRUTON , ALEXANDER SMITH, ELIZABETH CHUCK and PHIL HELSEL
    JUL 8 2016



    A suspect who was killed by police after snipers shot 12 Dallas officers, five fatally, "wanted to kill white people, especially white officers," police chief David Brown said.

    The man was killed after authorities cornered him in a garage at El Centro Community College. After several hours of negotiations, lasting into the early hours of Friday morning, officials exchanged gunfire with the suspect and "saw no other option" but to kill him by detonating a bomb, Brown said.

    "Other options would have exposed our officers to grave danger," he said.

    Brown said the suspect, who he would not identify, told a hostage negotiator that he was upset about the Black Lives Matter movement and the recent police shootings of black men elsewhere in the U.S.

    "The suspect stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers," Brown said. "The suspect stated that he was not affiliated with any groups and he stated that he did this alone."

    Dallas Police on Alert After Threat Against Law Enforcement

    by Phil Helsel

    The Dallas Police Department stepped up security Saturday after an anonymous threat was made against law enforcement officers in the city, the department said.

    Officers with body armor and long guns were seen outside Dallas police headquarters shortly after 5 p.m. local time. Police did not disclose the nature of the threat or how it was made. NBC Dallas-Fort Worth described it as a phone threat.

    The threat was made two days after a lone gunman opened fire on police at a protest rally, killing five officers, in an attack that ambush that targeted law enforcement. Seven other officers and two civilians were wounded...

    Guy in garage, who shouldn't be there.

    A detective saw the guy in the parking garage. He tried to talk to the guy, asked him what he was doing there, the guy did not respond and ran to a stairwell. The detective sounded the alarm. - Rebecca Lopez WFAA

    FYI - ONLY Police officers are allowed in the garage. It is directly attached to the DPD building.

    Now sources are saying to Rebecca that the suspicious guy may have escaped. Now being told that SWAT is getting to breech some door in the parking lot with weaponry.

    Hmm, could it be they have brought out the robot bomber?

    If I heard correctly there are two separate threats. The man in the garage and a phone threat.

    Officers are ordering reporter to move back because they are making it very difficult for them to do their jobs.
