There is chaos in Dallas as eleven police officers were shot at a protest over two recent fatal police shootings of black men.

Dallas Police have just confirmed that a fourth officer has died from their injuries, after another 3 were earlier confirmed deceased.

 

 

• Eleven officers were shot at a Dallas rally, four fatally.

Snipers were believed to be acting in response to this week's shootings of African-American men by police officers.

• Police have tweeted a picture of the gunman at large asking for the public's help. The man pictured has handed himself in.

• Police have apprehended a second suspect after a shootout. He was found with a suspicious package next to him.

LATEST: An alleged suspect was in a shootout with Dallas SWAT officers, Dallas Police Department said in a press release. A suspicious parcel was discovered near the suspect's location and is being secured by the DPD bomb squad.
