I have a Police Scanner App which alerts me whenever there are a significant number of people listening to a specific scanner within a city.

I noticed there were upwards of 1500 people listening to Dallas City Police. After Googling I found a decent link to the story but it is still developing.

Here is the Radio Reference Live Feed for those interested, or more, in the area.

Police had to control an angry crowd that formed near the scene of an officer-involved shooting that left a suspect dead late Tuesday afternoon. Witnesses say a man was shot while running from police near the intersection of Dixon Avenue and Bourquin Street.

DALLAS -
Dallas police shot and killed an armed man in the Pleasant Grove neighborhood of the city, prompting a tense situation with hundreds of gathering neighbors, many of whom were very emotional.

LIVE & TAPE: WATCH VIDEO FROM THE SCENE

The shooting happened at about 5:30 p.m. at a known drug house in the 5300 block of Bourquin Street, FOX 4 News reported.

Police said the unidentified suspect shot at officers, who returned fire, killing the man. Another suspect fled and was later arrested, police said.

No officers were injured, police said.

However, a crowd of hundreds gathered at the scene, prompting to police to call for additional crowd control support, both by ground and by air.

In fact, officers armed with pepper ball guns and shields forced the crowd back amid reports of people trying to cut through fences to gain access to the shooting scene.

FOX 4 News reported that, according to initial reports, the slain man's inconsolable mother confronted police at the scene and refused to leave.

A man who identified himself as the dead man's father said he was enraged because police shot in teh back his unarmed, 32-year-old son, whom he identified as James Harper.

"No reason for him to be shot like a dog. If he's running away from them, ain't no reason," James White said.

A chaotic fight also briefly broke out between some in the crowd.

Meanwhile, the body of the slain suspect remained at the shooting scene and was being guarded by police.

By about 6:30 p.m. the volatile crowd shrank a bit and divided into smaller groups as Dallas police announced its SWAT team was being deployed to the still potentially explosive situation. But citizens quickly began re-gathering.

Dallas City Councilman Dwaine Caraway was headed to the standoff aiming to help police calm the situation.

Additionally, Dallas police have announced they will hold a news conference soon.

Massive distrust of Police - check
Recent cases of police brutality - check
General economic decline - check
High temperatures - check
Deep sense of injustice - check

I think a lot of us know that we're waiting for something to begin. Some of us were worried that the Treyvon Martin case might do it.

Societies around the world are on the brink, and all it would take is one instance of unjust police action to tip the balance in an ugly direction.

These crowds forming are going to become more and more common, and at some point the police will not be able to stop it any longer.

Of course, they always have the option of going back to their duty as "peace officers," but I don't see that happening.

I live in the DFW area and the one thing I do know is that the area they're talking about is a dangerous place to be. I will have to search on this one to figure out what really happened. Was he, in fact, shot while running away or was he armed and shot at police first (like officials say)?

What is a Confederate hammerhead skin?

I grew up in Dallas and my father is a retired Dallas detective in the same division that this happened.
S/E Dallas, especially Pleasant Grove, is one of the worst areas of Dallas, if not the worst. I would hold off speculation until more facts are known.

I doubt if you'll find that out anytime soon, since it was an officer related shooting there will be an investigation.

Unfortunately, I would have to agree. Tensions are seemingly getting stretched quite a bit in this day and age. Not that they haven't in history, but current times just have an air of building pressure to them.

I do hope this current situation is met with resolve but, I have a feeling that if these situations like these continue, there will be one that is the proverbial straw on the camel's back.
