One of the suspects in the ambush-style shootings in Dallas that left five police officers dead overnight served in the U.S. Army Reserve. The suspect told a hostage negotiator that he was upset about the recent police shootings of two black men and that he wanted to kill white people, especially police officers, Dallas Police Chief David Brown said at a news conference this morning.

The suspect, who was killed by police when they detonated a bomb delivered by robot, was identified today as 25-year-old Micah Xavier Johnson, multiple law enforcement sources told ABC News.

Johnson served as an Army reservist until April 2015. He was trained and served in the Army Reserve as a carpentry and masonry specialist, defense officials said.

Johnson deployed to Afghanistan from November 2013 to July 2014, according to his service record. He had the rank of a private first class.

The suspect “wanted to kill officers” and “expressed anger for Black Lives Matter,” Brown said.

“None of that makes sense,” Brown said.
