Hours after the Dallas Police Department sparked a manhunt for Mark Hughes, a protester who was carrying a licensed and unloaded rifle at yesterday’s march through downtown where five officers were killed, a tweet urging followers to “help us find him!” is still online. Hughes was not in fact involved with the shooting, and his attorney said that he’s received “thousands” of death threats after being misidentified.
This is one of our suspects. Please help us find him! pic.twitter.com/Na5T8ZxSz6— Dallas Police Depart (@DallasPD) July 8, 2016
Maybe you guys should delete the tweet. Just a thought.
UPDATE (5:17 p.m.): They deleted the tweet. Good call, guys.
