An apparent lone gunman who allegedly fired on a Dallas Federal Building is dead. Several news outlets report that FBI officials claim Federal Protective Service officers shot and killed 22-year-old Brian Isaack Clyde. Authorities say no other individuals suffered injuries.
“I seen the gentleman coming out from the back of McDonald’s shooting at random. It sounded like he had an assault rifle. As I proceeded coming from another block, I started running when I found out pretty much what’s going on. And I tried to warn people and tell them there’s a guy down there shooting,” bystander Harmon Turner told fox4news.com. “When I did look back that’s how I knew he was heavily armed. He had an assault rifle. His face was kinda masked up. And when I seen that I was just in shock. I ran.”

Alan Wyatt said, “I heard what appeared to be three gunshots and I was sitting having coffee, watching TV. I jumped up with my dog and cracked the window open from the fourth floor and I saw the gunman standing at the entrance to the courthouse and he was blowing the front entrance out. There were two guards that popped out of the garage and then he then turned the gun and fired into the garage. I don’t think he hit anybody and then he just kind of took off,” as reported by fox4news.com.
By all accounts, the police response to this active shooter proved both swift and capable. We plan to publish more information as it becomes available.
