as you can see these are protesting different things at one time. chanting one thing, protesting another. then they came together and some began to chant to the capital, to the capital. at one point as they left the area and went to the capital there were some moments when they went through a preliminary barricade set up by capital barricade. the police were able to move back and they set up a secondary barricade. there were prayers, a little more pieceful. you can hear this is what happened outside the capital. some of them as you saw behind me worked their way back to the white house they made their passings evident. instead of us being out here right now and taking the time to say this is about black people and indian people, this is about everybody. if we don't come together, not just for black people,
people. we need to protect against police brutality. we'll go home and it will be business as usual. i want to he take you over to congress heights where the black lives matter had a protest of their own. it was a little bit disjointed. either way as you saw what's happening out of dallas tonight, both incidents, both outside the white house and the capital far more pieceful than what we saw in dallas tonight. i should mention that afterwards a lot of the tourists outside of the white house. it was almost back to normal. that's something some of the protestors said they don't want to see. they want some action be taken as we continue to see the police-involved shootings across the cunt country. d.c. police released video of a deadly officer involved shooting here.
fox5's lauren demarco joins us with more. it is dramatic footage that some may find disturbing. this is the first time that the city has release officer body camera video from a deadly police-involved shooting. the mayor's office says the timing is coincidental but she denied to make it public even though the case is still under investigation. fourth district officers responding to a call for a man with a gun in northeast. they arrived to find 63 year old sherman evans holding a weapon near second and barn up streets. you can hear the repeated requests for him to drop the gun. then luckily four minutes into the 15 minute video the officers opened fire. more than a dozen shots can be heard. copy fire.
the officers gave several commands. at some point they actually ended up bleeding with him to put down the weapon. that went on for almost seven minutes. the video shows the officer showed restraint. unfortunately mr. evans did not comply. evans was pronounced dead at the hospital. they later determined the weapon he was holding was a bibi gun. days later muriel bowser ordered this release. the chairman of the fraternal police disagrees with the move. my members have the same right due process as every other citizen. by releasing the video now we're in essence tampering with that criminal investigation. flowers and candles have been placed outside of evans' apartment building. police say he was the one to actually call 911 leaving some to say this was an act of
suicide by cop. neighbors we spoke with who did not want to be identified heard it all play out from inside their unit. the case is still under investigation, but police say officers fired when evans raised his arm. since the lens was blocked by a vehicle during can the actual gunfire the neighbors feel it leaves some questions unanswered > two of the officers were wearing body cameras. you saw footage from both. the one who was amention the first to arrive at the scene and another who arrived after the shots were fired. all of the officers involved in the shooting are on routine administrative leave while the investigation continues. life in studio, lauren demarco, fox5 local news. > outrage over all the ton sterling's death is hitting close to home. a d.c. firefighter is now suspended from his job after expressing his anger about the shooting on his personal facebook page. he made

scene can do their job. a the look of curious people out here as you can imagine p, hearing the succession of gunfire echoing. we take a life look here. the amount of people that have come down here who weren't part of the rally or the march, but who have come down here because of hearing all the rapid gun shots that you heard, 40 gun shots. we heard several dozen gun shots echoed through the tall buildings of danton dallas. a lot of people now obviously coming to check this out for themselves. we're going to continue to monitor this very fluid situation. > that's a report coming to you from our fox 44 station in dallas. this is video of when those shots rang out earlier, the crowd disbursing, multiple gun shots occurring. at least two officers shot
reporter with fox 4 news in dallas says there are several officers gravely injured. for those of you familiar with the dallas area, at least one officer was taken to baylor medical center after the shooting. and another reporter said that park hospital is expecting injuries as well. there is a large part that has shutdown. again, multiple officers we are told were shot tonight. we do not know their condition. one of the reporters just a short time ago. this is new video. these are probably people who were in the crowd. they ran to duck for cover behind some of the cars. some of the reporters there, some of our reporters at our sister station there reported seeing what they believe was an undercover officer coming out of an emergency room with a shoulder wound. his shoulder was wrapped up. again, we have no
officers were hurt. we were hearing reports that the gun shots could have been coming up from up high. there were reports that police investigators were going into hotels and going into elevators. they were looking every where to find the shooters. i can't imagine what the police officers are going through right now. it must be frustrating for them as to who was taking aim the at them. not only was it a pieceful demonstration. it was very calm and police officers and citizens were taking pictures together. it was such a calm demonstration until those shots did rink out. again, no word at this time, no official word on whether or not any suspects have been captured. there are reamers being reported on social media, but i've seen no official word from dallas police and nothing from our station in dallas as to whether or not any suspects have been captured at this this time. we should let you know

cover. we're rooting for clouds because it's heat release and it will tap the atmosphere from getting too riled up with thunderstorms. the average high is 89. not too far off the mark for this time of year. the humidity has been so incredible high high, it does make the temperatures 85 in the district, the humidity combines in with the temperature to make it feel like it's still 89-degrees at 9:00. 79 at frederick, 83 for dulles, 84 for fredericksburg. sunshine tomorrow, a warm start is that for sure. about 78-degrees when the sun comes up at 5:51. thank you to barbara lieu for the beautiful photo you sent in. it's a who the map tomorrow with temperatures in the low to mid 90s expected, but the changeup, a round of thunderstorms likely to be around in the area between 3 and 7:00.
passing by to our south he so it affected a couple of spots in charles county. most of us didn't see it. coming out of pennsylvania may deposit some clouds but i think we'll see very little rain from that. we'll keep it partly cloudy overnight, a stray storm, if anything. tomorrow, again, a who the and humid day. i think we'll cook up a few thunderstorms as well. 95 with some sunny skies. a little bit chance that we see those compared to today. here comes the frontal boundary and that's what we'll be seeing pushing into our area. the possibility of some of those being strong or severe with gusty winds and hail being the main threats. obviously they'll have a little bit of rain with all the humidity. still who the saturday, but much humid on sunday. all next week, though, we're starting to go right back into the low 90s. so fasten your seat belts, july is
