Dallas police shooting: The latest
At least one gunman shot and killed five police officers and wounded seven others in Dallas Thursday night during what had been, up until that point, a peaceful protest over fatal police shootings of black men in other states.
The suspect was killed by police using explosives in a parking garage where the man had exchanged gunfire with officers. Before he died, the suspect reportedly told police he wanted to kill white people, particularly white officers.
The shootings occurred days after Alton Sterling and Philando Castile were shot and killed by cops during traffic stops in Louisiana and Minnesota, respectively, reigniting the national debate over how law enforcement treats people of color.
