    Unconfirmed report: Driver claims to have C4 explosives he will detonate if police approach the van. The van is rigged with camera's on the exterior. Obviously a lot of planning has gone into this attack. It will be interesting to see who is behind this. Is it ISIS inspired? BLM movement inspired? or something else.

    What is BLM? It will be interesting to see who did it. Maybe some lone wolves? Some group of white supremacists?

    Any live feeds?
    I'm guessing not for the safety of law enforcement.
    Don't want perps to be able to see where they are positioned.
    I wonder if you could shoot INTO the gun ports?
    A sniper could totally hit that.

    Guessing the press conference will be live here though:

    I'd be looking for a couple anti-tank rocket launchers and be looking to end this real quick.

    So this is a nutter that is mad at the cops because he got arrested 3x for Domestic Violence, lost custody of his child, and now he has hunkered down in an armored van, and is exchanging gunfire with the Dallas PD?
