Mark Hughes has been released and no longer appears to be a suspect in the shootings in downtown Dallas

Mark Hughes, the man in the photo released Thursday evening as a possible suspect in the shooting that happened in downtown Dallas, has been released and is no longer believed to have been involved.

Mark Hughes is the brother of, Cory Hughes, one of the men who organized the peaceful protest. Cory Hughes has said that Mark, who was carrying an assault rifle, was demonstrating his right to carry a firearm. Immediately after the shootings, Cory got Mark to turn the gun over to police to avoid any problems. That happened before police released the photo of Mark, wearing camo and carrying a rifle.

After police released that photo and asked the public to help find him, Mark Hughes turned himself into police. He has now been released and no longer appears to be a suspect in the shooting.
