Knowing the current situation at hand (the murders of Philando Castile & Alton Sterling by racist cops), this was bound to happen. In the middle of a peaceful protest, 5 cops were gunned down while 6 more were injured. The status of their (the injured) health conditions has yet to be released.

The following videos below is what took place after the cop shootings:


According to Dallas Police Chief David Brown, at least 10 cops were shot by snipers while the 11th cop was shot in a shootout with the suspect. Officers claim that three people are in custody, none of their names have been released as of press time. A fourth suspect was killed in a standoff with police, after making threats about explosives.

"The suspect told our negotiators that the end is coming," Brown said. No explosives were found after a conducted search of the area.

Here are more updates, according to the Dallas Police Department's Twitter account:

But all in all, that didn't stop the cops from trying to frame a Black man, Mark Hughes, for the incident because he had on a camouflage shirt.

President Obama, who was in Poland for the NATO summit at the time, took the time out to speak on the situation calling the shootings "calculated" attacks.
