At least five police officers were killed and six others were wounded by snipers during a protest in Dallas on Thursday night.
The shooting came as a rally protesting the police shootings of black men in Minnesota and Louisiana earlier this week wound down. According to local media, gunshots rang out downtown at about 9 p.m. local time.
"Gunfights like the wild, wild West. Police officers started shooting in one direction. They don't know where they're shooting, but they start shooting, and whoever was shooting started shooting back," one witness told KXAS.
