Black Lives Matter Slay 4 Police Officers Amid Bloody Shootout

BLM protestors kill four police officers during Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas

Four police officers were killed on Thursday night as Black Lives Matter protestors opened fire on police in protest against the recent shootings of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota. 

Two snipers shot at ten police officers in Dallas during a BLM protest/rally.

Video from Dallas Morning News reporter Michael Bautista captured the slaying as it happened.

The Dallas Police Department have urged residents to call a special hotline with any information members of the public may have regarding the shootings:

An intensive search for suspects is currently underway. No suspects are in custody at this time. We ask that any citizen with information regarding the shootings tonight call 214-671-3485.

We will provide more information once it is available. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers tonight.

David Police Chief David Brown has confirmed that two suspects have been taken into custody alive. One of the suspects was captured after a shootout with the SWAT team.

A suspicious package, possibly a bomb, was also discovered in downtown Dallas by bomb squad members. reports:

Another man whose picture had been circulated by authorities as a “person of interest” had turned himself in. It was not immediately clear whether this person was in fact the second suspect.

Dallas Police Chief David Brown confirmed the four fatalities — three Dallas officers and one transit officer — and said seven other officers and one civilian were wounded in the shooting. Three of the injured officers reportedly were in critical condition and two others were in surgery.

Dallas’ public transit agency, DART, confirmed on Twitter that one of its officers was shot and killed, while three of its officers suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Brown said the shooters positioned themselves in two parking garages in downtown Dallas and “planned to kill as many law enforcement officers as they could.”

Fox4 cameras captured protesters running away from the scene of the shooting shortly before 9 p.m. local time. A cameraman approached the scene and captured officers apparently lying on the ground.

A Dallas police source estimated to Fox News that at least 60 rounds were fired over a “large kill zone.” The source added that the shooting would have required considerable planning.

Aerial images showed officers appearing to focus their search on a nearby parking garage, which may have served as the snipers’ perch.

Witness Carlos Harris told the Dallas Morning News the gunfire was “strategic. It was tap-tap-pause. Tap-tap-pause.”

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott released a statement saying he has directed the Texas Department of Public Safety director to offer “whatever assistance the City of Dallas needs at this time.”

“In times like this we must remember — and emphasize — the importance of uniting as Americans,” Abbott said.

The protesters had gathered after a Minnesota officer on Wednesday fatally shot Philando Castile while he was in a car with a woman and a child in a St. Paul suburb. The aftermath of the shooting was purportedly livestreamed in a widely shared Facebook video.

A day earlier, Alton Sterling was shot in Louisiana after being pinned to the pavement by two white officers. That, too, was captured on a cellphone video.

Michael Bautista told KDFW the protest march had been “very peaceful” before the shooting started.

Brittany Peete, a demonstrator, told the Associated Press she didn’t hear the gunshots, but she “saw people rushing back toward me saying there was an active shooter.”

Peete said she saw a woman trip and nearly get trampled as people ran to get to safety.

“Everyone just started running,” Devante Odom, 21, told The Dallas Morning News. “We lost touch with two of our friends just trying to get out of there.”

    What’s with the title laying the blame at the feet of black lives matter?

      Yeah, that’s what I was going to ask. To me, looks more like a black flag event with a double purpose. (1) cast BLM in a worse light, and (2) distract from the Comey/Hillary events. Should we chalk up those murders to Hillary?

      I’m not a fan of BLM – either one – Black Lives Matter or the Bureau of Land Management for what they’re doing in Oregon and other mid west states.

    Total communist manifesto dog and pony show. If cops were really murdered in cold blood, which I doubt. It was cointelpro cops inciting riots that got them murdered.

    The council for national policy inciting riots is against the law. I know for sure the supposed black killings were false flags… it’s an easy prove at the one stop shop for the truth….

    The shooter had nothing to do with Black Lives Matter. What a load of crap your “news” site is.

    By putting lies like this into the media, you endanger lives.
