VIDEO Downtown Dallas: At Least 2 Officers Reportedly Shot During Protest Over Fatal Police-Involved Shootings

DALLAS – At least two officers have been shot at a Dallas protest Thursday evening, according to KDFW.


Protesters and police alike took cover when shots rang out during a demonstration in response to recent deadly police shootings across the country.

Disturbing video shows what appears to be two officers and possibly several others lying in the street.

Police are currently investigating a parking garage near Commerce and Austin Streets in downtown Dallas as bystanders shelter in place, according to KTVT.

“The shots were coming from the roof,” one protester told the station. Witnesses reported hearing dozens of gunshots that scattered the crowd. That protester said that officers and bystanders alike were in the line of fire.

Police officers were searching for a man with a rifle, according to several reports. Many people said it sounded like a semi-automatic weapon.

“Everybody was fair game,” The man said. “They were just shooting randomly.”

It’s not yet clear the extent of the officers’ or any bystanders’ injuries.
