THE LATEST: MOTIVE IDENTIFIED IN SLAYING OF 5 POLICE OFFICERS AT ANTI-POLICE PROTEST IN DALLAS

Posted by Staff Writer on

The deceased shooter has been identified as Micah Xavier Johnson, an Army reservist from Mesquite, TX.  He has no known criminal history or ties to terror organizations. CNN is reporting he lived with his mother and a neighbor stated he was somewhat of a recluse.

UPDATE: 7:50 a.m. (Local)

During this morning's press conference with the Dallas mayor and police chief, several new details in the assassination of 5 Dallas police officers during an anti-police protest were revealed.

The most revealing fact was the stated motive of one of the killers.

After police had cornered one of the shooters, Dallas police attempted to negotiate with one of the suspects. He stated he was a Black Lives Matter supporter and angry about the killing of black men by police and wanted to kill white police officers and white people in general, according to Dallas Chief of Police David O. Brown.

This is contrary to reports that the suspect had killed himself. The suspect also stated he was not part of a larger group.

After negotiations failed, police sent in a bomb retrieval robot that was equipped with an explosive device. As the robot approached the suspect, police detonated the explosive device, killing the suspect.

There are 3 suspects in custody as of this morning.

One of the deceased police officers has been identified as Brent Thompson, a Dallas Area Rapid Transit Officer who was just married 2 weeks ago to another police officer.

This attack is almost exactly one year after another attack on Dallas Police Department HQ, where officers asked for more protections for officers from the mayor.

The question also must be raised as to why officers weren't equipped with riot gear for the protests and whether or not that would have saved the lives of any of the deceased.

Dallas police say they are questioning two occupants of a vehicle after an officer saw a person throw a bag into the back of the vehicle and speed off.

Police said late Thursday night that an officer spotted someone carrying a camouflage bag and quickly walking down the street. The person then threw the bag into the back of a black Mercedes and sped off at a high rate of speed.

Police say officers followed the vehicle southbound on Interstate 35 to a point south of Dallas where they performed a traffic stop. Police then began questioning both occupants of the vehicle.

Television footage showed many police cars surrounding a vehicle stopped on Interstate 35.

Hundreds of people gathered in Union Square Park in Manhattan and took to the streets to protest the recent police-related shootings of two black men.

The protesters on Thursday chanted "The people united, never be divided" and "Hands up don't shoot." Police scrambled to keep up with the crowd as the group left the park and marched up Fifth Avenue.

On Wednesday, a Minnesota officer fatally shot Philando Castile while he was in a car with a woman and a child in a St. Paul suburb. The aftermath of the shooting was purportedly livestreamed in a widely shared Facebook video.

A day earlier, Alton Sterling was shot in Louisiana after being pinned to the pavement by two white officers. That, too, was captured on a cellphone video.
