. . . "Dallas Police Chief David Brown said Friday that officers decided to use a bomb-disposal robot that was jury-rigged with explosives after negotiating with the suspect for several hours and then exchanging gunfire with him. Police identified the gunman as Micah Xavier Johnson, a 25-year-old Army veteran who served a tour in Afghanistan.
“ 'We saw no other option but to use our bomb robot, and place a device on its extension for it to detonate where the suspect was,” Chief Brown said at a news conference. “Other options would have exposed our officers to grave danger. The suspect is deceased as a result of detonating the bomb.”
