CNN anchor apologizes for calling Dallas gunman 'brave'

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) CNN anchor Fredricka Whitfield is apologizing for comments she made about a shooting last weekend at Dallas police headquarters.

In an on-air statement Monday, Whitfield said she misspoke terribly when she used the words "courageous" and "brave" to describe the attack.

Whitfield says she understands how offensive her comments were. She adds that she "in no way" believes the gunman who opened fire at police headquarters Saturday was courageous or brave.

The gunman was killed by a police sniper after a chase and parking lot standoff. Authorities say no one else was hurt in the attack.
