NBC Dallas-Fort Worth reporter Diana Zoga reported that their news van was hit by several bullets. She also said it appeared that more than one shooter was involved.

“As the vigil wrapped up, people began shooting,” Zoga said. “Multiple shots. Our news unit was hit at least 3 times. I have not seen anyone injured. It’s possible some took themselves to the hospital.”

The Dallas Police Department later released a statement saying the shooting appeared to have happened after an altercation that escalated.
