It’s unknown what exactly was in the man’s mind as he approached the Earle Cabell Federal Building in downtown Dallas on Monday, but his intent was easy to read.
Clad in tactical gear and carrying an assault-style rifle and at least five 30-round magazines, the man — whom police identified as Brian Isaack Clyde — started shooting as he neared the entrance, then cut and ran when security officers returned fire. He collapsed, mortally wounded, in a parking lot across the street.
guess i was wrong it was a local reporter named fox not fox news as i had stated above but if you check out of the photos he looks like a counter strike player and appeared to have some kind of knife
It's a lot of rounds — a lot of rounds at his disposal, a large powerful weapon at his disposal," FBI agent Matthew DeSarno was quoted by The Associated Press as saying. "But for the actions for the Federal Protective Service officers, this likely would have been a very deadly incident," he said. Dallas Morning News photographer Tom Fox took a photo of the gunman, face covered and wearing glasses and what appears to be body armor and a waist belt containing several magazines of ammunition.
why any one would try this at a hard target like a court house let alone in frigging dallas baffles me but as i said earlier glad no innocents were hurt and tax payers dont have to pay the bill for this guys incarceration
"So, I pulled up my long lens and saw someone who I realized was the shooter. And I think, 'Oh my God.' I squeezed off a few frames as he picked something up – a clip, I think – and then I turned and ran," he recalled. Video of the incident shared on Twitter shows exactly how close Fox was to the gunman. As the gunman approached the front of the courthouse, he appears to exchange fire with people who are offscreen. He is feet away from Fox, who is hiding behind a column and crouching as shots echoed throughout the block.
for how inept(thankfully) he was at attempting this
he was also a drop out from the army who decided to wear a 101st airborne insignia

I tend to think that the cops should do whatever they can to capture these dirtbags alive so that it becomes clear that anyone who does this kind of crap stands a high chance of spending the rest of their life rotting in prison.
