As of Friday morning, three suspects were in custody and another suspect was in a standoff with police. One suspect claimed to have planted explosives throughout the city but nothing was found during sweeps of those locations.

Dallas Police Chief David Brown said the suspect had exchanged gunfire with the police and “has told our negotiators that the end is coming, and he's going to hurt and kill more of us, meaning law enforcement.”

The other three suspects included a woman who had been in the garage and two men who were seen throwing a duffel bag into a Mercedes before speeding away from the area, Brown told reporters.

“We are being very careful in our tactics so we don't put any of our officers in harm, as well as the citizens of Dallas,” Brown said.

In a press conference Friday morning, President Obama called the sniper attacks as “vicious, calculated, and despicable.”
