One slain officer was a newlywed. Another had survived multiple tours in Iraq, only to be killed back home in the US. A protester who doesn't normally march was shot trying to shield her sons.
The stories of those killed or wounded in a sniper attack in Dallas during a protest over recent police shootings of black men emerged on Friday as their identities became known. Authorities say five officers were killed and seven others wounded in the deadliest day for US law enforcement since the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Two civilians also were shot.
