In an effort to get breaking news out as fast as possible, this man was falsely identified as a suspect in last nights murder of five Dallas police officers.

Social media posted a picture of this man all over social media claiming he was one of the suspects in the Dallas police protest that left five cops dead and eleven injured.

Mark Huges was carrying his rifle during the protests in Dallas, and a picture was taken of him during the event. Little did he know his picture would soon be spread to millions of social media users as one of the suspects in the murder of five police officers.

I think social media is very important and a useful tool to help identify suspects, but the media and users of social media need to be very cautious of posting pictures with no facts to back them.

Whats even more disturbing is that the Dallas PD still have his picture and are asking the public to help find him.
