Dallas police say four officers have died after at least two snipers opened fire during protests downtown. Seven other officers were wounded.

Police Chief David O. Brown said police have a suspect cornered in a garage and are negotiating with that person. He says the snipers fired upon officers “ambush style.”

Brown had said three officers were killed, and police issued a tweet later saying a fourth officer had died.

Brown says snipers shot from “elevated positions” during a protest over two recent fatal police shootings.

The gunfire broke out around 8:45
