Four gunmen shot 12 police officers – killing at least five – in a Black Lives Matter protest in downtown Dallas Thursday night described by President Obama as a ‘vicious, calculated and despicable attack on law enforcement’.
One of the police officers killed in the attack has been identified as 43-year-old Dart Officer Brent Thompson. A second slain officer was named by his family as young father Patrick Zamarripa.
The shooters opened fire from ‘elevated positions’, picking off officers ‘ambush style’ as they manned a protest over the deaths of two black men – Philando Castile in Minnesota and Alton Sterling in Louisiana this week, police chief David Brown said. ‘Some officers were shot in the back,’ he added.
A gruesome video shows a heroic policeman taking on one of the gunmen, but being gunned down and shot again execution-style from point-blank range.
Three of the gunmen are in custody. A fourth man, who was engaged in a shootout with police from a parking garage at El Centro College, killed himself with a shot to the head. The gunman told officers bombs had been planted across Dallas and that ‘the end is coming’.
However, police have now confirmed no explosives were found in two sweeps. The ‘massive’ crime scene is now being processed, Dallas Police Major Max Geron said.
A female, who was in the same area as the gunman who shot himself, is in custody, however Brown said: ‘We still don’t have complete comfort that we have all the suspects.’
Police said two people are being questioned after they were spotted speeding away from the scene of the shooting in a black Mercedes. An officer saw one of the pair hurriedly putting a camouflage bag in the back of the car before driving off ‘at a high rate of speed’.

In a statement from Warsaw, Poland where he is at a NATO summit, President Obama expressed his ‘deepest condolences to the American people’, and warned that he still didn’t know all of the facts of the massacre.
‘They were on duty doing their jobs, keeping people safe during peaceful protests… they were targeted and nearly a dozen officers were shot,’ President Obama said.
‘I believe I speak for every American, when I say we are horrified and stand united with the police department in Dallas.’
President Obama confirmed the FBI is working with Dallas police and said ‘anyone involved will be made accountable… justice will be done.’
He urged the nation to remember to ‘express our profound gratitude for our men and women in blue’.
The shootings have sparked more racial tension in America and mark the deadliest day for U.S. law enforcement since the 9/11 attacks, when 72 officers died in the line of duty. Americans in major cities nationwide took to the streets on Thursday night to demand answers over the killings of Castile and Sterling.
