Dallas police officials say officers are searching for a suspicious person in a parking garage next to its headquarters.

A nearby light rail station also was closed. The Dallas Transit agency cited "police activity."
    
A Dallas police spokeswoman said earlier Saturday that the department received an anonymous threat against law enforcement across the city and has tightened security.
    
The city is on edge since a sniper opened fire on officers guiding a protest march two days ago, killing five officers.
