We are just learning that 5 people have been arrested after opening fire on police in Southeast Washington, D.C. early Tuesday morning.
This latest attack comes less than one week after 5 Dallas police were murdered in cold blood by a man who professed his desire to kill white police officers, and many believe he was inspired by Black Lives Matter.
From NBC Washington:
Five people have been arrested after they opened fire on police in Southeast Washington Tuesday morning.
Police say a shot spotter detected gunfire in the area of Alabama Avenue and 6th Street SE at about midnight.
When officers arrived at the scene, several people inside an SUV immediately began shooting at the officers. The officers returned fire and demanded the suspects get out of the vehicle.
Police say the suspects refused to get out of the SUV, and police began to negotiate with them. After about 30 minutes, the suspects surrendered.
Two men and three women were taken into custody.
Police say the suspects may have been involved in a crime that happened just prior to their encounter with police.
No injuries were reported.
