Dallas – Dallas Police Chief David Brown says three people are in custody after snipers opened fire on police officers during protests and says a fourth person is exchanging gunfire with officers.

Brown said at an early Friday morning news conference that authorities are negotiating with a suspect in a downtown parking garage who has been exchanging gunfire with officials.

The chief says the suspect is not co-operating and has told negotiators he intends to hurt more law enforcement officials.

Brown says authorities are not certain all suspects have been located.
