Officers Who Killed Dallas Police Ambush Sniper Will Not Face Charges

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – A grand jury has declined to bring any charges against the Dallas police officers who were responsible for the death of a sniper who had killed five other police officers during a downtown rally. The Dallas County District Attorney’s office said in a statement on Wednesday that investigators presented their findings to a grand jury more than a year after the July 2016 attack. “The grand jury returned a no bill. All evidence related to this case has been returned to the Dallas Police Department,” district attorney Faith Johnson said. The decision appears to conclude the investigation, which began shortly after gunman Micah Johnson fatally shot the officers. Micah Johnson later was killed by a robot that was carrying explosives — a first for any U.S. law enforcement agency. Ballistic reports, transcripts of police negotiations with Johnson, and other evidence has been withheld.
