Most people expect police stations to be safe places, but after a shocking shooting at Dallas Police Department Headquarters, that looks like being a myth.
A sniper shot at police and planted explosives at the station, and thankfully failed to injure anyone, with the footage captured showing the sniper also ramming a police cruiser before fleeing the scene.

Dallas Police Chief David Brown claimed that the sniper specifically targeted police, and that he believed the suspect ‘meant to kill officers’.
Updated reports have claimed that the gunman is now believed to be dead, being killed in the stand-off with police.
