The snipers positioned themselves on rooftops, very strategically placed to ambush the police with maximum effect. The police officers barricaded soon after as they opened negotiations with the gunmen. The assailants threatened to continue their acts as the police cases were "spreading like cancer."
The gunmen threatened that they had placed bombs all over the city. They threatened to detonate them if the police came any closer. The police finally contained the individuals. They were four people this far thought to be involved in the planning and execution of the plan.
Police are also suspecting that the gunmen were in cohorts with the crowd. They stated that only one woman civilian was injured during the shooting. The shooters seem to be very well trained, as they executed the shot perfectly.
"We believe that these suspects were positioning themselves in a way to triangulate on these officers from two different perches in garages in the downtown areas and planned to injure and kill as many law enforcement personnel as they could," said Dallas Police Chief David Brown.
This incident is set to cause more ripples as some people are starting to view this as black verses white altercation. "3 Dallas Cops killed, seven wounded. This is now war," Said former Illinois congressman Joe Walsh wrote on Twitter. "Watch out Obama. Watch out black lives matter punks. Real America is coming after you."
