4 policemen have been and killed and 7 injured by alleged snipers at a protest in Dallas. The protest followed the death of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile who were killed by police officers over the past two days. Castile’s girlfriend live-streamed his death while sitting in the passenger seat of their car. Castile was shot at a traffic stop and his girlfriend live-streamed him lying bleeding saying that they had been stopped and police had opened fire when Castile reached for his driver’s license.
This led to a protest in Dallas where 11 policeman were shot, 4 of them fatally. This is footage of events as it happened captured by Michael Bautista.
“Shooters killed five officers during protests against police in downtown Dallas, marking the deadliest single attack on law enforcement since September 11, 2001.
Gunshots rang out Thursday night during demonstrations against the shooting deaths of two African-American men by police in Louisiana and Minnesota.
A total of 11 officers were shot, Dallas police said. A standoff is underway as authorities try to negotiate with a suspect in a downtown garage.” [CNN]
