Family and friends gathered in Dallas this morning to honor the murdered officers, and to take part in a dedication ceremony for a new memorial in their honor.
The memorial includes bronze plaques on stones, forming a circle around a flag pole.

The ambush happened on July 7, 2016, during a march to protest police shootings of black men.
The suspect, a 25-year old former army reservist, acted alone, and died during a standoff.
It was the deadliest single incident for law enforcement officers since 9/11.
A weekend of events is planned to honor the dead officers and the seven others who were injured.
