Resumen:  Los estudiantes y miembros del personal pasaron varias horas terribles encerrados en El Centro College en el centro de Dallas durante la noche mientras los francotiradores abrieron fuego contra la policía, matando a cinco agentes e hiriendo a otros siete.

Students and staff members spent several terrifying hours locked inside El Centro College in downtown Dallas overnight as snipers opened fire on police, killing five officers and wounding seven others.

The lockdown, which affected an unknown number of faculty and staff members, was lifted just after 2 a.m., but Friday classes were cancelled. The shooting began at around 9 p.m. Thursday as an emotional but peaceful protest of this week’s killings of two black men by police officers in Louisiana and Minnesota was winding down.

Shortly before midnight, police cornered a shooting suspect who was holed up in an El Centro College garage. The suspect was later killed by the police, who used what law-enforcement officials described as a bomb robot.

Police said Friday morning that three other suspects are in custody.

Officials with the Dallas County Community College District said the campus was placed on lockdown at 8 p.m. as a precaution before protesters reached the area.
