Arsenal of weapons found in home of Dallas shooter who wanted to ‘kill whites’

An arsenal of weapons – including bomb-making material – was found in the home of the sniper who shot five Dallas police officers Thursday night and then told police he “wanted to kill white people.”

During a search of Micah Xavier Johnson’s home, detectives found bomb making materials, ballistic vests, rifles, ammunition, and a personal journal of combat tactics, the Dallas Police Department reported late Friday.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings later told a late afternoon press conference that he believed Johnson was “the lone shooter, a mobile shooter” with “written manifestos about how to shoot and move.”

As the law enforcement community reeled from its deadliest day since 9/11, a troubling portrait emerged of Johnson, 25, who was blown up by a police robot early Friday morning. One friend who served in his platoon during a tour in Afghanistan said Johnson changed after he came home.

“When he came back from Afghanistan, he got in touch with some bad folks and went all Black Panther,” the man, who asked not to be identified, told

Johnson, who is believed to be from the Dallas suburb of Mesquite, confirmed his racial rage to police as he was holed up in the El Centro College parking garage in downtown Dallas.

“The suspect said he was upset about Black Lives Matter,” Dallas Police Chief David Brown said Friday morning. “He was upset about recent police shootings. He was upset with white people.

It’s so sad that this guy was a veteran.

His life could have gone in such a different direction.
