DALLAS (AP) — The police chief in Dallas says a suspect in last night's deadly attack on police officers told negotiators that he acted alone and was unaffiliated with any group.
Chief David Brown said in a press conference on Friday morning that the suspect also said he was upset about recent police shootings and wanted to kill white people, particularly white officers.
He says officers killed the suspect with a robot-delivered bomb after hours of negotiations failed.
Although Brown says the suspect said he acted alone, it remains unclear if that was the case. He said earlier that three other suspects were in custody, but he later declined to discuss those detentions and said police still didn't know if investigators had accounted for all participants in the attack.
It began during a protest about the recent killings by police of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota.
Five officers were killed and seven others were wounded. Two civilians were also wounded.
