At least 11 police officers have been shot and three killed by snipers during a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas, according to Dallas police. 
Dallas Police Chief David Brown said Thursday night that two snipers shot “from elevated positions,” and police are searching for the suspects.
Brown said four officers were dead, three were in critical condition and another two were in surgery. 
Dramatic video from earlier in the evening shows dozens of officers converging on several buildings in downtown Dallas, including a parking garage. In another,several shots can be heard ringing out as sirens blare in the background. Rev. Jeff Hood, an organizer of the rally, told the Dallas Morning News he was at the front of the protest with an officer before he heard “what sounded like six to eight shots.”
“I saw people scramble,” Hood said. “The officer ran towards the shots, I ran away from the shots trying to get people off the streets, and I was grabbing myself to see if I was shot.”  Earlier today, hundreds gathered in cities across the country to protest the recent police shootings of Alton Sterling, a 37-year-old killed outside a convenience store in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Philando Castile, who was shot during a traffic stop in Minnesota.
Demonstrators were carrying signs and chanting “no justice no peace” and “hands up, don’t shoot” ― common refrains of the Black Lives Matter movement.
