justice will be done. i will have more to say about this as the facts become more clear. for now. >> the president speaking from poland this morning about the devastation in dallas. five officers dead. another six injured after what started as a peaceful protest in dallas. >> the protests on the heels of the deaths of alton sterling and castile, two black men killed 22 hours apart causing a nation of unrest. this is a live look at dallas texas, sniper shots started downtown before 9:00 last night during a peaceful protest. >> developing details every moment. here's what we know, a total of 11 officers were shot. five have now been confirmed dead. >> three people are in custody. a fourth suspect was exchanging gunfire with authorities in a parking garage downtown. we learned from our sister
station in dallas that suspect shot and killed hills. >> the protests have been a response to the videos. two black men shot and killed by police. first shooting death of alton sterling in baton rouge. >> then st. paul of castile his death streamed live by his girlfriend. >> dave kitchen you have first hand accounts from dallas. >> reporter: yes, we always have remark as made from the president. we're monitoring video being fed in from our station capturing the attacks. we want to caution you. it may be hard to view. this video shows several officers on the ground. we have blurred them because of the obvious sensitivity of the situation. you can see that he can ducking behind their police cars. you will see an officer or two rush in and try to bring this
officer, drag him or her out of the line of fire right there. very desperate situation as you can see and just very chaotic there. chilling video also showing one of the texas gunmen armed with a rifle opening fire on the streets of dallas periodically hiding behind the columns. you can see there of that building and then coming back out to fire more shots. we do not know which sniper this is. we do not that one of them died from a self inflicted gunshot wound and three others were taken into custody. meantime we are hearing from president obama at the nato summit in poland. >> we do not there has been a vicious cal calculated and despicable attack on law enforcement. police in dallas were on duty doing their jobs, keeping people safe during peaceful protests. these law enforcement officers were targeted.
and nearly a dozen were shot. >> coming from main street, i saw the bullets hitting the cop car. >> you said you actually saw an officer hit. >> yes, i did. >> just devastating, obviously we're continue to monitor the events and we will bring you new video from witnesses of relatives and maybe those who were hurt who decide to talk, we will bring you all of that as it comes in this morning. >> dave kinchen thank you so much. back here at home. fun re hundreds of activists, clergy and people in our area marched through center city to protest the condition this week, it was the second consecutive night of demonstration that is seemed to stay peaceful. >> philadelphia police say they're always on high alert, especially these days and especially this week. steve keeley live at police headquarters in philadelphia with how local officers are
responding to this. steve? >> reporter: viewers see us here at headquarters all the time. reason we're out back this is where the commanders are usually parked. you see the spots empty like they usually are this time of day but they've been empty most days this week as a popular vacation week but the leaders of this department lead by example. of while they may have not been here in the morning, you saw the top guys in the country hamming protest, chief supervisor joe sullivan and commissioner rich ross leading the police presence last night out there that a news conference talking about the future protest situation with the democratic national convention then hit the streets at the height of the heat and rush hour to make sure their men and women kept all the men and women and children protesting and walking through the busiest streets at the busiest time during the evening rush hour safe last night. we expect these guys will be back on the streets with the protesters today, special in late of what happened in dallas.
because they're going to do what most people might not think they would do, not worry about their own safety but extra worried about the protesters safety, worried that anybody may blame the protesters here, say, as a whole for what happened in dallas to those law enforcement officers. so no word from police. don't expect any big announcements about what changes or what things they will do differently and new to be on the alert to make sure their officers are safe. i don't want to tip anybody off. you can bet for sure they're going to go over the plan again and again like they keep doing and will do for sure all through the summer. because we're going to have more protests today, more protests especially during that convention. sadly, the situation in this country doesn't seem to change for the better, but seems to be changing for the worse, making the job of a philadelphia police officer a lot harder.
we all remember jesse hart nato summ summit. they will come through this as well. we'll let you know if rich ross shows up in the morning to have a command meeting and you can bet he'll have a word for us and it's public if he does show up this morning. >> much like those dallas officers ambushed as we saw on the video. 6:06, we're going down to wilmington delaware, looks like sue serio has already made it there. how does it feel outside. >> reporter: wilmington is welcoming us. they're rolling out the welcome mat already this morning, we're in the hb dupont put plaza on delaware valley by washington street, offer 95. roll on down delaware avenue.
