Dallas police “took out” one of the suspects behind the deadly attack on its officers Thursday night using a robotic explosive device, the city’s mayor told CNN early Friday, according to the Daily Beast.
“We were able to take out one of the suspects, who had been cornered in the garage, with an explosive device,” Mayor Mike Rawlings said. “We’ve got other possible suspects that we’re interviewing. They’re not being real cooperative at this point. We’ve called in a lot of people to make sure that we’ve got all the background material we need.”
At a press conference, Dallas police chief David Brown confirmed, “The male suspect was killed by the bomb,” adding that, during the standoff, he stated “he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.”
