Numerous police officers were shot after the radical activist group Black Lives Matters pushed their followers to create chaos throughout the country tonight.
Three Dallas Police officers are dead, one Dallas Transit officer is dead, and at least eleven officers have been shot.
Witnesses say that two people unleashed a barrage of gunfire at the police. According to local reports, one person has been captured and one other gunman is on the loose. Local News agencies are reporting that police are on the lookout for at least one more black male who appeared to be wearing a bullet-proof vest and tactical gear. Other reports say they are searching for someone with a modern ar-15 style rifle.
The situation is still very fluid and at least one shooter is still on the loose, but initial reports say at least multiple officers were shot at as the so-called protest moved through the streets of Dallas. Police have asked everyone to get to safety and avoid downtown Dallas.
