Snipers Shoot Police During Protest in Dallas
The mayor of Dallas says a total of 12 police officers and two civilians were shot in an ambush-style attack during a downtown protest march.
Five of the officers were killed but Mike Rawlings says he doesn't believe the others who were wounded have life-threatening injuries.
Snipers opened fire last night during protests over two recent fatal police shootings of black men in Louisana and Minnesota.
Rawlings says a suspect involved in an overnight standoff with police died after officers used explosives to "blast him out.''
