At least 11 police officers were shot — four fatally — by snipers in downtown Dallas, Texas, on Thursday night following a peaceful march protesting recent police shootings of black men.
Dallas Police Chief David Brown said late Thursday that four of the officers died, three others were in critical condition, and two more were in surgery.
CNN reported that at least three of the wounded officers were from the Dallas Area Rapid Transit police. At least two of the deceased officers were from the Dallas Police Department, and one from DART. One civilian was also wounded, police said.
