Fourth Dallas Suspect Dead After Shoot Out With Police: Reports

A fourth suspect involved in the fatal Dallas police shootings late Thursday is dead after a long standoff with police, according to local media reports. Local TV-station WFAA said police had confirmed that a suspect had died around 3 a.m. at El Centro College, but that it wasn't immediately clear if he had shot himself or was killed by law enforcement. Three other suspects, including a woman, have been taken into custody. The four people are believed to be behind a coordinated attack against police officers in Dallas Thursday night during a protest over police brutality. The attack left five officers dead and six wounded. Dallas Police Chief David Brown said at least two snipers had opened fire on the policemen from "elevated positions", according to reports.
