On July 9, 2016, a lone sniper shot 12 Dallas officers, five fatally. He “wanted to kill white people, especially white officers,” during a protest march of Black Lives Matter. The gunman was killed after authorities cornered him in a parking garage at El Centro Community College. After several hours of negotiations, lasting into the early hours of Friday morning, officials exchanged gunfire with the suspect and “saw no other option” but to kill him by detonating a bomb. Chief Hill will discuss the event and how the police department’s actions were planned and put into action during it.
