Sources tell NEWS 8 that Dallas Police Headquarters is under a lockdown Saturday afternoon due to a threat that is being 'taken seriously' by police.
The lockdown was put into place shortly after 4 p.m. DPD SWAT has been deployed to headquarters, sources say.

More details to follow.

Hopefully it's just a prankster.

So there's a threat from an armed group in Houston?

From what the local news is reporting there is a report of a group from Houston heading to Dallas headquarters making a very serious threat.

SWAT is on top of buildings armed and with binoculars.

Weird.

Hopefully that group, if there is one, had the radio on and heads for home.

This is utterly stupid.

The media needs to be accountable and George Soros needs to be in prison.

Agreed.

This is like the proverbial "shouting fire in a crowded theater." Borderline criminal.

The article quoted DPD as saying THEY received an anonymous tip about the threat. So unless somebody from the news called in an anonymous tip, which seems a bit odd, I'm not sure how the media caused this.

but that's the business they are in. if you worked for one of those news outlets, I would have been in your best interest to generate viewers or clicks or ratings.

Media doesn't have to report it with such ferver and zeal. It's wall to wall.

And I know many won't like it but...if this is actually something legit, maaaaaaybe, just maybe, it would have been more prudent not to blow up the one asshat that could provide insight into whether or not this was an organized conspiracy against DPD or LEO in general.

Given the magnitude of events in Dallas on Thursday night, it seems ill-conceived.

Wow they are gearing the F up.

I'm so glad I don't live in a big city.

Anyone spooked this threat is a distraction?

Following this link at the moment...live feed

SWAT swarms parking garage by DPD headquarters with weapons drawn

Seems like it's just a reaction at the moment...don't think anything's actually happened yet

12 cops were just attacked, 5 of whom are now dead. There's now another threat to officers in the same city, which the department apparently takes serious enough to take precautionary measures.

Is that supposed to get a five second mention and then on to the hot dog eating contest for six minutes?

ETA - maybe, just maybe, the asshat made it clear he was going to continue killing them so long as he was able to. After he was afforded the opportunity to knock off his bullsnip. He declined the offer.
