Dallas Ambush Suspect
July 8, 2016 by staff
Dallas Ambush Suspect, DALLAS At least one sniper killed five Dallas police officers and wounded another seven in a racially charged attack that ended when police used a robot carrying a bomb to kill him, the city’s shaken police chief said on Friday.
The incident began on Thursday evening at the end of a protest over this week’s killing of two black men by local police in the United States.
The shooting sent protesters running in panic while swarms of police found themselves under attack by what they believed to be multiple gunmen using high-powered rifles at ground level and on rooftops.
During lengthy negotiations with police, the gunman said he had wanted to kill white people and white police officers and was angry about the recent shootings. He cited the “Black Lives Matter” anti-police-violence movement, but also said he was not part of a larger organization, said Dallas Police Chief David Brown.
“We had an exchange of gunfire with the suspect. We saw no other option but to use our bomb robot,” Brown told reporters at City Hall.
This week’s killings of black men by police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and outside Minneapolis were the latest in a long string of similar, controversial killings that have led to almost two years of national protests over race and justice. The latest deaths are both being investigated by federal authorities.
