Dallas shooting: Bomb material found at suspect’s home

Bomb-making material, rifles, ammunition and combat journal have been found at the home of the main suspect in the Dallas shooting. Police said the material was found when they searched the home of Micah Johnson in the Dallas suburb of Mesquite.

Five police officers were killed and seven wounded in a hail of gunfire during a protest against the shooting of black men by police. Johnson died following a long stand-off with police in central Dallas.

Police confirmed media reports that the 25-year-old army veteran was the person killed when they remotely detonated explosives they sent into the car park where he was holed up. They said he had no criminal history. Police arrested three people and initially said they believed at least two snipers had caught police in crossfire, shooting some officers in the back.
