     Dallas police are looking for the gunman who shot out the back window of a squad car overnight.

    Just before 12:30 a.m. Dallas police got calls about illegal street racing in Southeast Oak Cliff.

    Officers rolled to the scene along South Central Expressway near East Overton.

    Suddenly, there was gunfire from one of the cars involved in the racing and the squad car's window was blown out in a hail of glass fragments.

    The racers got away, heading south on Central.

    Police closed that stretch of Central near I-45 for the investigation but it was reopened early this morning.
