CBS News' coverage of the tragedy began Thursday night on CBSN, the 24/7 digital streaming news service, with Elaine Quijano reporting just after 10:01 p.m. that there was violence at a protest in Dallas. Those reports soon escalated with Manuel Bojorguez and Omar Villafranca reporting live from Dallas overnight. On Friday, CBSN's around-the-clock coverage continued with Anne Marie Green, Jeff Glor, Jamie Yuccas and Reena Ninan anchoring from New York with reports from CBS News correspondents around the country.
