New Threat Against Dallas Police, Possible Radio Hoax Trigger Lockdown at HQ

1468107307-DPD_Lockdown1

A threat against Dallas police and the sighting of a suspicious person in a parking garage near their headquarters put officers on high alert Saturday afternoon, days after they came under fire in downtown Dallas.

Officers searched the garage after using a shotgun to break a lock on a fence there, but the hunt turned up nothing. Other media reported that the man may have fled.

An early report of gunfire was debunked by police, who also said there was never a lockdown at the headquarters.

But police were clearly taking no chances, especially in light of the deadly assault two days in earlier in downtown Dallas. A second search using K-9 units was planned.
