Tragedy unfolds in Dallas, TX
« on: June 14, 2015, 01:31:24 AM »
A man with a history of delusional thoughts and angry about losing custody of his son is believed to have attacked the Dallas Police headquarters in an armored van Saturday morning, opening fire on the building and responding officers after leaving pipe bombs in the parking lot.

The man identified himself to police as James Boulware. Police said they haven’t confirmed if Boulware is the person who was involved in the shooting, but it was the name the suspect gave to them.

Boulware was shot and killed during the standoff. There were no other casualties, although one officer narrowly avoided stepping on a pile of pipe bombs.

More here.
I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

I read in another article yesterday that the shooter started firing at the station into an entrance/front area, and an officer had left that area mere moments before to get a soda. Good timing.

Lord have mercy on this man's soul and his poor family.

Thanks be to God no one else was hurt. 
In His Mercy,
