Shooters killed five officers in downtown Dallas during protests against the fatal shootings
A suspect who was killed by police after snipers shot 12 Dallas officers, five fatally, “wanted to kill white people, especially white officers,” police chief David Brown said.
The man was killed after authorities cornered him in a garage at El Centro Community College. After several hours of negotiations, lasting into the early hours of Friday morning, officials exchanged gunfire with the suspect and “saw no other option” but to kill him by detonating a bomb, Brown said.
“Other options would have exposed our officers to grave danger,” he said.
Brown said the suspect, who he would not identify, told a hostage negotiator that he was upset about the Black Lives Matter movement and the recent police shootings of black men elsewhere in the U.S.
“The suspect stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers,” Brown said. “The suspect stated that he was not affiliated with any groups and he stated that he did this alone.”
Nonetheless, officers took three other people into custody.
Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings praised the team who took down the suspect.
“The good news: He’s gone off the face of the Earth,” Rawlings told MSNBC.
The city’s downtown was in lockdown Friday after Thursday night’s ambush, which marked the deadliest day for law enforcement since Sept. 11, 2001.
Earlier, the suspect had told police negotiators that “the end is coming” and that “there are bombs all over the place in this garage and downtown,” Brown said.
