Suspected Shooter Spotted Near Dallas Police Headquarters, Alert Sounded


Dallas: A threat against Dallas police and the sight of a masked man near the department’s headquarters put officers on high alert Saturday afternoon, days after they came under fire in downtown Dallas.

Commanders met Saturday afternoon at the Lamar Street complex to update Chief David Brown on the latest in the investigation into Thursday night’s deadly shooting.

But after the meeting wrapped up, the police chief told the investigators to go home and get some rest because they’ve been working tirelessly since the attack.

The building was put on lockdown shortly afterward, when police received an anonymous threat against them. Lamar Street has also been shut down in front of the building.

A man wearing a black mask was spotted in a parking garage behind the headquarters and SWAT officers surrounded the building with guns drawn.

No shots have been fired, despite initial reports of gunshots.
