What happened to the triangular sniper crossfire, which needs more than one gunman? All news bulletins were saying ‘snipers’ 24 hours ago.
The New York Post said;
Dallas Police Chief David Brown believed the snipers had shot at police ambush-style from high points during an otherwise peaceful protest.
Protests were also held in other cities — including New York City — across the country Thursday night after a Minnesota officer on Wednesday fatally shot Philando Castile while he was in a car with his girlfriend and her 4-year-old daughter.
The daily Telegraph suggested Johnson acted alone, well they aren’t sure
Police initially thought multiple shooters had levelled fire on them, but by Friday morning were less clear whether there was more than one attacker.
One sniper, thought to be Micah Johnson, has been killed while exchanging gunfire with authorities at a parking garage in Dallas, while two other suspects are in custody. Police officers surrounded a car park near El Centro College where an armed man was firing off rounds with a rifle.
Of course its only one gunman….
And shot dead by police.
Every single False Flag narrative is the same! Arrrggh
Now Police say officers have been targeted in Tennessee, Georgia and Missouri in the aftermath of two high-profile killings of black men by law enforcement.
The attack in Tennessee occurred hours before the killing of five police officers in Dallas on Thursday night during a protest. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says the attacker told authorities that he was frustrated by the recent killings by police of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota.
Police have not disclosed a motive in Friday’s attacks in Georgia and Missouri, which have been described as ambushes.
In a fourth attack early Friday, a motorist fired at a police car as the officer drove by. In all, four officers were wounded. The officer wounded outside St. Louis is in critical but stable condition. The wounded officers are expected to survive.
A suburban St. Louis police chief says a motorist shot an officer three times as the officer walked back to his car during a traffic stop.
Ballwin Police Chief Kevin Scott said at a news conference Friday that the attack happened around 11 a.m. and was captured on video.
St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar says the suspect, who is in his 30s, “ambushed” the officer, who is in critical but stable condition. His identity wasn’t released.
The shooting comes amid heightened tension following an attack in Dallas in which five police officers were killed and seven others and two civilians were wounded.
Dallas police say the slain suspect in the killings of five police officers had bomb-making materials, ballistic vests, rifles, ammunition, and a personal journal of combat tactics at his home.
They also say that people they interviewed have described 25-year-old Micah Johnson as a loner.
COPS in the US say officers around the country have been targeted in the aftermath of police killings of black men.
Five officers were killed and seven more wounded when two snipers opened fire in Dallas, Texas, yesterday.
The shooters – one of whom was killed at the scene – were said to be angry about the deaths of black men at the hands of cops.
But authorities have said similar incidents to the Dallas attack are now being reported across America.
Police officers have been targeted as violent attacks were carried out in the US states of Tennessee, Georgia and Missouri.
One person was killed and several more hurt after a gunman opened fire on a highway near the town of Bristol in the southern state of Tennessee.
Local law enforcement said the attack could have been motivated by anger over recent police shootings, including the killing of Alton Sterling in Louisiana this week.
The incident, which was caught on camera by a member of the public, was the trigger for the protest at which the 12 officers were shot in Texas.
In Ballwin, Missouri, a cop was hit after being having three shots fired at him as he walked back to his car after a routine traffic stop.
Local Police Chief Jon Belmar described the attack as an “ambush”.
The suspect sped off in his car but was later caught on foot, while the condition of the officer remains unknown.
And in Valdosta, Georgia, a suspect lured police to an address with an emergency call reporting a break-in.
