Details are a little unclear right now, but there has been a shooting at an anti-police brutality protest in Dallas. At first it was reported that two cops were shot, but that has since been changed to 11 cops being shot and four of them having been killed.

Apparently there were at least two shooters and possibly three, who shot at police from a distance sniper style. Based on videos taken at the time of the shooting, they were armed with rifles, which sounded like semi-automatic fire and at least one was wearing body armor.

Reportedly, one was “neutralized” while the another (the one with body armor) is currently involved in a standoff with other police at the scene. A third has been identified as a “person of interest,” although it’s not yet clear what his status is.
