5:33 am
stop. and then overnight officers engaged and killed a fourth suspect who started shooting at them inside a parking garage. the sniper started shooting at the end of what had been a peaceful protest in downtown dallas. this was a protest over the recent killings of black men in louisiana and minnesota. some of those officers during the sniping attack were shot in the back in what has been called an ambush style attack. >> it's a cop down. >> yes. four cops down. >> four? >> yes. >> he shot five seven times. >> it's a dude? >> no, it's a sniper from up here somewhere. >> it's a sniper? >> you hear the shots. get down. get down. >> police do not yet have a motive for the sniper attack in dallas which incidentally took police not far from the plaza where another sniper took down an american president more than 50 years ago. >> bob, thank you very much. all of this has prompted police departments across the country to change their tactics.

5:35 am
>> to about 2,000 people the protests about 2,000 people have started about 7:00 last night. about 1,000 of the protesters headed to the nimitz freeway and stopped traffic. during the night some protesters also vandalized the roek land police headquarters throwing head paint on the doors and spray painting anti-police message on the building. vandalism done on the foot locker store in oakland. protesters say they want police and city leaders to work with the community to make the city safer. >> my mom is worried about my death. >> every day. >> every day. my sister is worriedn't my death every day. >> if i had a son today i would have to worry about him every i think isle d l le single day of life. >> last night started peacefully at around 7:00. but as we mentioned a lot of vandalism seen this morning along broadway. some protesters vandalized chase

5:37 am
poland. and all your commentators have wished us well and are praying for us. i want to say from our heart we feel that, so thank you. i am now going to tell you some not good news for you reporters and that is we've got a criminal investigation going on. and our number one job is to make sure the citizens of dallas are safe, so we're not going to tell you anything about the suspects and we're not going to answer any questions on that. we will when it's the right time. now is not the right time. but a lot has happened in the last five or six, seven hours since we talked. i guess it was early in the morning. and i want chief brown to give you an update on that. i'm proud of him. he's been working so hard these
5:38 am
last few hours. we've been with families and we've been trying to make sure that the city is safe this morning. and i believe it is. chief brown. >> thank you, mayor. we're hurting. our profession is hurting. dallas officers are hurting. we are heartbroken. there are no words to describe the atrocity that occurred to our city. all i know is that this -- this must stop, this deviivisiveness between our police and our citiz citizens.
5:39 am
to update you on what's transpired since we last spoke let me walk through the standoff that had occurred -- that was occurring at el centro on the second floor, the college there in downtown dallas. we cornered one suspect and we tried to negotiate for several hours. negotiations broke down. we had an exchange of gunfire with the suspect. we saw no other option but to use our bomb robot and place a device -- its extension for it to detonate where the suspect was. other options would have exposed our officers to grave danger.
5:40 am
the suspect is deceased as a result of the detonating the bomb. the reporting that the suspect killed himself is not accurate. we confirmed that he's been deceased because of the detonation of the bomb. our hostage negotiator did an exceptional job getting this suspect to talk before he died during the hours of negotiating that eventually broke down. i want to share with you some of the comments from this suspect. the suspect said he was upset about black lives matter. he said he was upset about the recent police shootings.
5:41 am
the suspect said he was upset at white people. the suspect stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers. the suspect stated he will eventually -- that we will eventually find the ieds. the suspect stated he was not affiliated with any groups and he stated that he did this alone. the suspect said other things that are part of this investigation so that we can make sure that everyone associated with this tragic event is brought to justice, so as the mayor said, we won't expand on any further on what other suspects we have interviewed or looked at or
5:42 am
their status until we get further into this investigation and get closer to a conclusion of what and who are all involved. but let me just say just some closing comments about dallas police officers and d.a.r.t. police officers. some of the bravest men and women you would ever want to be associated with. you see video footage after video footage of them running toward gunfire from an elevated position and with no chance to protect themselves and to put themselves in harm's way to make sure citizens can get to a place of security. so please join me in applauding
5:43 am
these brave men and women who do this job under great scrutiny, under great vulnerability, who literally risk their lives to protect our democracy. we don't feel much support most days. let's not make today most days. please, we need your support to be able to protect you from men like these who carried out this tragic, tragic. event. pray for these families. i spoke with the families of the deceased and the injured. they are not having a good time
5:44 am
trying to deal, absorb this, trying to understand why. and they need your prayers. so please join news helping us comfort the grieving officers' families. and i trust that soon, because we're working very diligently in processing the crime scene, finding -- to find evidence to bring any other suspects to justice, that were a part of this. please pray for our strength through this trying time. thank you. >> i want to add that there are -- >> you have been listening to the dallas mayor mike rawlings there and of course the police chief david brown calling for an end to the divisiveness and a call of strength right now not just for the folks in dallas but
5:45 am
for police departments all over the country who are grieving learning this news. the shootings by officers and of officers across the country, the last few days, has tensions clearly boiling over in some areas. >> we will continue our coverage of this breaking news story with nbc's edward lawrence in washington. edward, are you surprised to hear the police chief talking about what that suspect said in terms of what he wanted to do, that he wanted to injure white people, white police officers and he was upset over black lives matter and police shootings? >> kris and sam, that's one of the speculations in the beginning of all this, as to a possible motive. police will flesh out what happened. it is interesting though the president of the united states called the mayor of dallas to give his condolences. the president also spoke about this, calling this a vicious, ca calculate and despicable act. he said there is no justification for attacking law enforcement officers in this way. the president is being briefed
5:46 am
as he continues his nato trip in poland. president barack obama at the nato summit in poland this morning addressed the recent string of police-involved shootings. now with three high profile shootings in the past 36 hours either by police officers or targeting police officers in dallas have the nation on edge. >> well, we do know is that there has been a vicious, calculated, and despicable attack. >> the real sooigs -- >> reporter: protests erupted outside the white house, more in atlanta, new york, and across the country. >> we have to move to a specific reform. >> reporter: the president says the police as well as people of all races can do better. >> no possible justification for these kinds of attacks, or any violence against law enforcement, anyone involved in these senseless murders will be held fully accountable. justice will be done. >> reporter: first in baton rouge where an officer pinned then shot 37-year-old alton sterling on tuesday.
5:47 am
