    A gunman is currently at large after two police officers and one civilian were shot and critically wounded.

    Speaking at a press conference, Mr Rawlings said: “Dallas once again is at the precipice looking into the hell of heartbreak as our police department was attacked this afternoon.”

    He added the Dallas press has always been responsible, but “families come first, not the news” as he said he would not give details of the officers who were shot.

    He said: “I continue to be upset at the lack of respect of our police, both in this city and our country.

    “Now is the moment we can lift them up and I ask you to do this.”
