Shortly after midnight on Saturday, the police headquarters in Dallas was inundated with gunfire. About 12 hours later, the suspect was confirmed dead, having been shot earlier by a sniper. He engaged in two shootouts with police, the second one occurring after his vehicle was chased to the Dallas suburbs. People in the headquarters building narrowly escaped injury, and authorities later used robots to investigate bomb threats.
The suspect in the attack on Dallas police headquarters had a record of domestic violence and a history of custody issues, but authorities have found nothing in his past to indicate he would target police, Chief David Brown said Saturday.
