DALLAS (AP) — The Dallas police chief defended the department’s use of a robot-delivered bomb to kill the suspect in Thursday’s shooting.
Chief David Brown said at a news conference Monday that the suspect, 25-year-old Micah Johnson, had “already killed us in a grave way, and officers were in surgery that didn’t make it.”
Brown added: “This wasn’t an ethical dilemma for me.”
Johnson shot and killed five officers and wounded 9 officers and two civilians in downtown Dallas.
