Gun attack on Dallas police HQ
June 13, 2015 6:40 pm
A gunman has opened fire on the police headquarters in the US city of Dallas, before fleeing the scene in what appeared to be an armoured vehicle.
A police chase led to a tense standoff in a car park for several hours, until police shot the suspect through the front windshield of the van.
Police say the suspect is dead, but have not confirmed the man’s identity.
Two bombs left outside the Dallas police HQ in Texas, and two more bombs found inside the van, have detonated.
The motive for the attack is not clear. No officers have been hurt.
Police say the suspect’s van caught fire as officers detonated two pipe bombs in the vehicle.
