Snikskyttere åpnet ild mot politiet under en demonstrasjon  mot politivold i Dallas, Texas, torsdag kveld. Fem er rapportert drept og syv såret.

Tre personer er arrestert.

Fortsatt befinner politiet seg i skuddveksling med en fjerde, som har forskanset seg i et parkeringshus. Han skal ikke være lett å forhandle med, sier politiet. I stedet sier han “the end is coming”. Det tyder på at han ikke tenker å overgi seg. Eller det er politiet han mener. Politisjef David Brown siterer ham på at flere politi vil bli drept og at det er plassert bomber rundt om i byen.

Brown said the suspect “told negotiators the end is coming,” that gunmen were “going to hurt and kill more of us” and “that there are bombs all over the place in the garage.”

Politiet vet ingenting mot motivet. De tror at alle fire har samarbeidet og at drapene var planlagt. Da må det være et motiv.

Pressed on what the motive of the shooters was or whether they were associated with any group, he replied, “At this point we don’t have a lot of cooperation to find those answers.”

Brown added police aren’t getting answers on “motivation” or “who they are.”

The “assumption” of police, he said, is that all four suspects were working together, triangulating with rifles along elevated areas along the route of the march.

Et koordinert angrep på politiet er noe nytt i USA og vil ventelig utløse sterke reaksjoner.

Demonstrasjonen torsdag mellom 1900 og 2100 ble arrangert av en borgerrettsgruppe som kaller seg Next Generation Action Network.

Vitner forteller at politimenn ble nærmest henrettet på åpen gate.

One video shot by an onlooker in a building across the street showed a gunman pulling up in a black SUV and exchanging fire with police while sheltering behind a pole. As the emergency blinkers flickered on the SUV, a Dallas cop approached the suspect and fired, only to hit body armor. The suspect killed the officer, then fled the area, cameraman Ismael Dejesus told CNN.

Politimannen lå på bakken og angriperen sto over han og tømte magasinet mot ham, har andre vitner fortalt.
