(NEWSER) –– The chaos in Dallas is over after the city's police headquarters was attacked by a gunman with bombs.
A police sniper has indeed killed the suspect inside his van, reports AP. It took a while to confirm because police were cautious about approaching the vehicle. It also appears that he acted alone, contrary to earlier police reports that up to four people were involved. Police Chief David Brown said the man identified himself as James Boulware and blamed police for "accusing him of being a terrorist" and causing him to lose custody of his son. He allegedly opened fire on police headquarters with automatic weapons about 12:30am and left two explosive devices near the building.
One of them, described as a pipe bomb, detonated as an explosives robot moved it, but nobody was injured.
