Fighting on the streets of Dallas TX this morning


Explosives found, suspect cornered after gunfire targets Dallas police HQ

Story highlights

There's now no threat to the Dallas police headquarters, spokesman says

Up to four attackers may have fired from various locations, police chief says

They gave chase and cornered an attacker who drove an armored van

(CNN)At least one attacker opened fire on Dallas' police headquarters early Saturday, riddling windows and police cars with bullets before fleeing in a van to a suburban restaurant parking lot, where officers surrounded the vehicle in a standoff that has lasted for hours.
Officers exchanged gunfire with the attacker or attackers at both sites. And as dawn broke in Texas -- hours after the near-midnight attack began -- they still were watching the driver in the parking lot of a Jack in the Box restaurant in Hutchins, forcing authorities to close parts of nearby Interstate 45.
No injuries were immediately reported, but police were dealing with a parallel threat -- at least two pipe bombs that were found outside the police headquarters after the initial shooting.
One of the devices exploded as a bomb-squad robot tried to move it Saturday morning. Police posted a picture on Twitter that appeared to show that vehicles were damaged in the blast.
The bomb squad detonated the second device. Police later said they determined there was no longer a threat at the headquarters building, but they still were searching the area for more explosives.

I'm living in the Dallas suburbs now, and my office isn't far from this shooting. Yikes.
