    Breaking on Fox, CNN, etc., news channels. At a protest for two men killed by LE in other states, someone with a 'rifle' shot two officers assigned to monitor the protest. This is just now breaking. Shooter is being sought on Lamar, between Commerce and Main Streets.

    Looks like it's still an active shooter, in a large parking garage, who shot the 2 cops with a long rifle...

    Not a surprising turn of events unfortunately. I hope the officers will be okay and thst tensions can be eased. Not sure what can be done to fix all that is wrong in the longer term but I hope it happens quickly and peacefully.

    This is insane. I heard they are looking for a male in a camo shirt who had gotten out of a red suburban. **no source so take it with that in mind** news just said 3-6 officers down.

    50+ gunshots. Sorry for the broken sentences/fast replies. I'm on my phone listening to 3 news stations and trying to get in touch with some clients of my husbands who work as LE.

    Apparently the event had been going smoothly, no issues, cops giving protestors plenty of space. Shooting came from parking garage according to witnesses. I saw videos of police going floor to floor clearing it out.
