    Was Dallas Gunman a Lone Wolf Terrorist?

    (DALLAS) —  In a tense standoff with police in a Dallas parking garage, suspected shooter Micah Xavier Johnson told negotiators he acted alone in the mass shooting, which killed five law enforcement officers and injured seven more, and no ties to any certain group or organization. Johnson said he was “upset about white people” and the recent officer-involved shootings that left two African American men, Philando Castile and Alton Sterling, dead earlier that week, authorities said.

    Dallas Ambush Shooting by Lone Gunman Was 'Well-Planned' and 'Thought Out,' Police Say

    (DALLAS) — The ambush that left five Dallas law enforcement officers dead and seven more injured was “a well-planned, well-thought-out, evil tragedy” by a lone suspected gunman — a former Army reservist — who wrote manifestos on how to shoot and move, according to the mayor and police chief of Dallas. “We won’t rest until we bring everyone to justice,” Police Chief David Brown said Friday. “We’re hurting. Our profession is hurting. Dallas officers are hurting,” Brown said earlier. “We are heartbroken. There are no words to describe the atrocity that occurred to our city.” Micah Xavier Johnson, 25, who […]

    Robot Bomb Used to Kill Dallas Suspect Appears to Be First Time Tactic Used

    (DALLAS) — The robot-delivered bomb used to kill a suspect in the Dallas ambush as he barricaded himself in a building during a standoff with cops appears to be the first the tactic was employed, experts say.

When police attempted to subdue the suspect — who in this case killed and injured several people, according to police — the goal was to resolve the situation with no […]

    Dallas Police Chief Is No Stranger to Tragedy

    (DALLAS) — Dallas Police Chief David Brown Sr. is no stranger to tragedy. Before five police officers were killed and seven more were injured in a deadly Dallas shooting spree last night, Brown Sr., a 30-year veteran and a Dallas native, had already lost his former police partner, his younger brother and his own son to gun violence. On August 2, 1988, his longtime partner, Officer Walter Williams, was investigating a disturbance when the 47-year-old Williams was ambushed and shot in the head with a .22 caliber handgun. According to the Officer Down Memorial Page, “responding officers returned fire, killing […]
