(Newser) – "I was by the hospital on the sidewalk, and when I stared into the entrance, I heard some sobbing." That's Ting Shen's description, via NPR, of the scene at Baylor University Medical Center after Thursday night's shooting in Dallas, which left five police officers dead and at least six injured. Shen, a summer intern for the Dallas Morning News, pulled out his camera and took a photo of a Dallas Area Rapid Transit officer "in sweat and tears" being comforted near the entrance. That powerful photo showing one scene from the shooting's aftermath appears on Friday morning's cover of the News.
