Shots were fired from what was described as an armored van in an attack on Dallas Police headquarters early on Saturday, police said, and an explosive device was found outside the building.

Dallas Police Chief David Brown told reporters that a motive for the attack was not yet known. The device later exploded as a police robot attempted to move it.
He said witnesses said as many as four suspects were involved in the incident, which began around 12:30 a.m.
No officers have been injured, but one suspect, who has been speaking with police, said he had been hurt, Brown said.

The police chief said when police responded to reports of automatic gunfire, the van rammed a squad car and at least one person began shooting. The van drove off when the police returned fire and the police gave chase, Brown said.
The van stopped in a fast food restaurant parking lot in the city of Hutchins, some 10 miles (16 km) south of Dallas, where there was another exchange of gunfire.
