RAPID CITY (AP) - Police in Rapid City say a car show scheduled for Sunday has been postponed after an individual called a local media outlet and threatened police officers who would be at the planned event.

Police on Friday said the media outlet immediately contacted police after receiving the threat. Police didn't immediately identify the outlet.

Police Chief Karl Jegeris in a statement says the department is working to identify the individual who made the threat. He says that the safety of the public and officers is his department's "top priority."

The police department's decision comes a day after five police officers were killed and seven others wounded in a shooting in downtown Dallas during a protest over the recent killings by police of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota.
