People rally in Dallas, Texas, on Thursday, July 7, 2016 to protest the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

A total of 10 police officers were shot during the protests, Dallas Police Chief David Brown said. An 11th was shot during an exchange of gunfire with one of the suspects, and the officer was transported to the hospital, authorities said.
— Brown said there could be more than two shooters. He said police had cornered a suspect in a commercial garage. “These suspects have threatened to plant a bomb in the downtown area,” he said.
— Two of the shooters were snipers, who shot from an “elevated position” and fired on officers “ambush-style,” he said.
— Officers killed included one DART officer and two Dallas police officers. DART, the Dallas Area Rapid Transit agency, operates buses and commuter rail in the city and surrounding suburbs.
— The Dallas Police Department circulated a photo of a man they said was a suspect in the shooting, but later called him a person of interest and said he turned himself in.
— An “alleged suspect” is in custody, the Dallas Police Department tweeted.
— A suspicious package was discovered near that suspect’s location. The package is being secured by a bomb squad, the tweet said.
