The shootings was another sad day in American history. And it was reported by BBC that the gunman had told Dallas police he wanted to kill white people. Especially white police offices. BCC was quoting the Dallas City Police Chief
The suspect, Micah Johnson, 25, claimed that he was upset about the recent police shootings of black people. This was told by Police Chief David Brown.
Five police officers were killed and seven wounded during a march against the shooting of black men by police.
Three people are in custody- whether they are or where with the other gunmen is not clear.
The protest in Dallas took place after the deaths of Philando Castile in Minnesota and Alton Sterling in Louisiana.
Mr Brown said the suspect had been killed when police used explosives placed by a robot to end a tense stand-off in a building where he had taken cover.
The suspect Micah Johnson was a member of the US Army reserve. “He said he was upset about Black Lives Matter he said he was upset about the recent police shootings,” Mr Brown told a news conference.
“The suspect said he was upset at white people. The suspect stated that he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.”
Mr Brown added that the man had said he was not affiliated with any groups and he had acted alone.
However, speaking earlier Police Chief Brown had said two snipers had fired from “elevated positions”, shooting some officers in the back.
