DALLAS, Texas–Five Dallas police officers were fatally shot and seven others wounded during a protest over the deaths of black men killed by police this week in Louisiana and Minnesota. The is the deadliest day for U.S. law enforcement since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

“We do not feel supported most days,” Dallas Police Chief David Brown said. “Let’s not make this most days.”

The cop-killer has been identified as Micah Johnson, 25. While other media are reporting that Johnson is from Mesquite, Texas, and that he may have served in the military, PPD cannot independently confirm that to be true.

The gunmen, before he died, said he wanted to kill white police officers in the wake of other police shootings of black men. Three other suspects are in custody.
