Danger and Play obtained a photo of the Dallas shooter responsible for the deaths of five police officers, Micah Johnson, a few minutes after he was killed by a robot bomb that was sent in by police.
The investigation suggests that Johnson had prepared for a long time to conduct an attack on police officers, especially white ones. After the protest by the Black Lives Matter Movement protesting the deaths of two black men by police officers, Johnson moved up his plans for the attack.
“Our search of the suspect’s home in Mesquite leads us to believe, based on evidence of bomb-making materials and a journal, that this suspect had been practicing explosive detonations and that the materials were such that it was large enough to have devastating effects throughout our city and our North Texas area,” Police Chief David Brown said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
During high school, Johnson was in JROTC at John Horn High School in Mesquite Texas. Following high school, he enlisted in the U.S. Army reserve in 2009.
According to his attorney, Johnson, who served in Afghanistan, was discharged last year after being accused of sexual harassment.
SOFREP News also obtained a photo of Micah Johnson’s weapon used in the shooting. When Dallas swat entered the building after the explosive device detonated, the found a Saiga AK-74 type semiautomatic rifle on the ground among the rubble.
