One of four suspects responsible for carrying out that deadly police ambush in Dallas Thursday night has been identified as 25-year-old Micah Johnson, multiple news sources confirm.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the gunman was killed by a detonated robot bomb following a seven-hour stand off with police. Authorities also engaged in a shootout with the suspect before he was killed.

Johnson has no criminal history nor any ties to extremist groups, the publication stated.

Upset over the recent deaths of two Black men at the hands of police, Johnson reportedly acted alone and stated he “wanted to kill white officers,” according to ABC News.

Dallas police said at least three other suspects are currently in custody.

Photos of Johnson are currently circulating on social media. He appears to have been military trained. According to Heavy.com, Johnson was a corporal in the U.S. Army and served in Afghanistan.

Pictures of the deceased gunman in an U.S. Army uniform prompted reactions from those who suspected Johnson was military trained.
