DALLAS (AP) More than 1,000 people have gathered in downtown Dallas to attend a candlelight vigil for the five police officers killed during a protest march.
Speakers at the Monday night vigil included police officials and friends of the slain officers. Portraits of the officers were propped up in front of the speaker’s platform.
Dallas Police Chief David Brown told the crowd that police officers are like superheroes.
Dallas Area Rapid Transit Police Chief J.D. Spiller says the attacks won’t tear the city apart. Spiller, who said there must be discussions on race relations in America, also adds, “We must lead America in protecting and supporting our police officers.”
Four Dallas police officers and one DART officer were killed in Thursday’s attack.
