Twelve police officers were shot and five killed while working at a Black Lives Matter protest in downtown Dallas Thursday night, by a gunman who said he carried out the attack to revenge the two police -related deaths of black men this week.

Responding police officers did not return fire during the standoff because it was unclear where the gunfire was coming from, according to Craig. He added that police initially believed another person was firing from a neighboring house, but ultimately determined there was only one barricaded shooter situation.

The women, in their 50s or 60s, were taken to the hospital and pronounced dead. The off-duty DPSCD officer suffered a gunshot wound to the knee and is expected to survive. The two other police officers also suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Despite earlier reports that the suspect was contained, Craig said police took a neighbor into custody and determined the individual did not fire any shots. Craig added the neighbor will be released later today.

Police said an argument may have sparked the incident. The suspect also reportedly suffers from mental illness and has no criminal history. He has seven guns registered under his name.

"It's not just dangerous for police officers — we are in a dangerous line of work — but it is dangerous for our community," Detroit Police Asst. Chief Arnold Williams said, according to WWJ.
