Johnson has no ties to terror groups or even a criminal history. “He wanted to kill officers. And he expressed killing white people, killing white officers, he expressed anger for Black Lives Matter,” Dallas Police Chief David Brown said during a press conference.  Chief Brown also stated that the suspect claimed the police would find I.E.Ds.

Johnson was killed when Dallas police detonated a robot operated bomb around 2:30am on Friday morning. Police were hesitant to send other officers in  harms way because of the statements regarding IED placement. There are 3 others in custody surrounding this situation and Fort Meade Daily will bring more information as it becomes available.
