Official: Dallas shooter had pistol, handgun, rifle on him
DALLAS (AP) — A law enforcement official says the gunman who killed five police officers during a Dallas protest had a pistol, a handgun and a rifle on him at the time of the attack.
The official says Micah Johnson had a Glock 19 Gen4 pistol, a Fraser .25-caliber handgun and a semi-automatic Izhmash Saiga assault-style rifle on him when he was killed by a robot-delivered bomb after the Thursday night shootings and that the guns were purchased legally.
The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity in order to discuss an ongoing investigation.
Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings has said the 25-year-old Johnson was wearing a bulletproof vest during the attack that wounded four other officers and two civilians. The three specific weapons were first reported by CNN.
