DALLAS (AP) – Dallas Police Chief David Brown says authorities are still not certain that they have identified everyone involved in an attack on a downtown protest march that killed five police officers. He says investigators have not ruled out that others may have been involved in the attacks that left a total of 12 officers and two civilians shot. Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings says an overnight standoff with one suspect in a parking garage ended when police detonated an explosive about four hours after the attack began. Authorities say the explosive was attached to a robot to protect officers. Police say the suspect told them that he was angry over police shootings of blacks, and that he wanted to kill white people — particularly white police officers.
