Dallas Police Chief Brown: ‘We’re Hurting’

DALLAS (NBC News) – A suspect who was killed by police after snipers shot 12 Dallas officers, five fatally, “wanted to kill white people, especially white officers,” police chief David Brown said.

The man was killed after authorities cornered him in a garage at El Centro Community College. After several hours of negotiations, lasting into the early hours of Friday morning, officials exchanged gunfire with the suspect and “saw no other option” but to kill him by detonating a bomb, Brown said.

“Other options would have exposed our officers to grave danger,” he said.
