Dallas Shooter Planned Attack for Months, Took 'Opportunity' of Protests, Judge Says

Monday, July 11, 2016 | Tag Cloud Tags:

(Worthy News) - Micah Johnson had planned his sniper attack on Dallas police for months and practiced combat tactics in preparation, a Dallas official said today.

Johnson opened fire on police during a peaceful Black Lives Matter demonstration Thursday night, when marchers were protesting the fatal shootings of two black men by police officers, one in Minnesota and the other in Louisiana. He killed five police officers and wounded nine others.

Dallas County Chief Executive Judge Clay Jenkins said Johnson had been planning and training, and took advantage of the protest because of the high police presence.

"He knew police would be amassing at that scene and he used it as an opportunity to shoot," Jenkins said. [ Source ]
