Also, AP isn't calling it a Black Lives Matter event anymore.
Dallas was in shock and beset by uncertainty early Friday after gunmen shot and killed five police officers and wounded seven more officers and two civilians during a peaceful protest over fatal police shootings of black men in other states, police said, in bloodshed evoking the trauma of the nation's tumultuous civil rights era.The mainstream media goes into its "spin cycle" about an hour after a tragedy. Earlier reports mentioned Black Lives Matter.
Police Chief David Brown blamed "snipers" and said three suspects were in custody while a fourth had exchanged gunfire with authorities in a parking garage downtown and told negotiators he intended to hurt more law enforcement officials.
Early Friday, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said the fourth suspect had died.
"We don't exactly know the last moments of his death but explosives did blast him out," Rawlings told The Associated Press.
