Dallas police chief claims racial motive in sniper attacks: ‘He wanted to kill white people’
of the suspects in the deadly sniper attack that killed five police officers in Dallas and wounded six more said he was upset by recent police shootings of black men and wanted to kill white cops.
Dallas Police Chief David Brown said the attackers likely knew the march route and “triangulated” their targets from above, reported USA Today.
One of the gunmen was killed by a robot-delivered bomb, and three suspects were taken into custody.
The chief corrected previous reports that the suspect had shot himself.
Brown said the suspect seemed lucid during the interview, and he warned that the assailants had placed improvised explosive devices throughout the area.
