PHILADELPHIA — Shouts of “Black Lives Matter” rang out at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night, during a moment of silence held in honor of slain police officers.

The voice of at least one man and one woman are heard loudly yelling “Black Lives Matter” moments after Dallas Sheriff Lupe Valdez initiated the moment of silence in honor of slain cops in Dallas and in other cities around the country. A black man recently shot five officers to death in her city of Dallas, and wounded others, then told police he’s angry at white people before he was killed.

Some near the offenders reportedly shushed them, but the shouts persisted throughout what intended to be the moment of silence.

Following Valdez’s remarks, a few family members of slain officers addressed the crowd, and endorsed Hillary Clinton. Several mothers of men and women championed by the Black Lives Matter movement had taken the DNC stage Tuesday to share their stories and also endorsed Clinton.
