Eleven law enforcement officers were shot, five of them killed in an ambush-style shooting carried out by snipers Thursday night and early Friday morning during a protest of recent police shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota.

The shootings took place in and around Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas, and began at about 9:00 p.m. local time (10:00 p.m. ET) as the protest was winding down.

Just prior to midnight, police reported that two suspects were in custody and two more were being sought. Authorities released a photo of one of the suspects and asked for the public’s help in finding him.

Dallas Police Chief David Brown reported that one or more explosive devices were believed to have been planted in the area.

At an early morning press briefing, Brown reported that a third suspect was then in custody and a fourth continued to exchange gunfire with police officers.
