VIDEO: Active Shooter Taken Out By Officers At Texas Courthouse

Brian Clyde was wearing a ballistic vest and other tactical gear when he opened fire outside the federal courthouse.

Dallas, TX – An active shooter was fatally shot by police after he attacked a federal courthouse building in downtown Dallas on Monday morning (video below).

Police responded to the Earle Cabell Federal Courthouse building for reports of an active shooter at approximately 8:50 a.m., ABC News reported.

Witnesses said they heard gunshots in the parking lot, and that they spotted the suspected gunman crouching down behind vehicles parked in the area, according to WFAA.

“There has been an exchange of gunfire between a suspect and federal officers,” the Dallas Police Department (DPD) confirmed in a tweet.

Cell phone footage recorded by a witness showed the gunman, later identified as 22-year-old Brian Isaack Clyde, as he fired rounds at police while outside the courthouse with a rifle.

Clyde appeared to be wearing a ballistic vest, as well as other tactical gear.

Federal officers returned fire, and Clyde ran across a parking area before he appeared to collapse to the ground.

He was rushed to Baylor University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, Federal Bureau of Investigation Dallas/Fort Worth Office Special Agent in Charge Matthew DeSarno said, according to ABC News.

Investigators are still working to identify a possible motive for the attack.

"At this time, we have no information indicating that there are other shooters, other threats to the community," SAC DeSarno noted.

Clyde’s vehicle was located near the courthouse, and is being examined by bomb squad technicians and a bomb squad robot, ABC News reported.

“The Bomb Squad is preparing to do a controlled explosion of the suspect’s vehicle,” the DPD confirmed in a tweet.

No officers or civilians were injured during the attack, WFAA reported.

El Centro College and the courthouse remain on lock down, and at least one nearby building has been evacuated.

Tell me why this man was allowed to own an assault rifle? Oh, I forgot- his 2nd Amendment Rights allow everyone to own powerful killing machines. Keep this up, and we'll all be dead.

Great work, LEOs. Another example of why bad guys with guns should be met with good guys with guns.

Also, Suicide by cop is a weasel dirty thing to do. Im aware all cops aren't great, ones in my daughter's town have big attitudes & even bigger egos. Ive heard kids talk smack about cops, I tell these kids the same thing. When someone robs you, at gun point, or assults u or a fam. member who do ppl call to stand in the line of fire & get everyone to safety.

Tiffany liou is a dis-information agent. And watch the camera work.
It’s blatant (shaky, onoff, floating, keeping flourescent vest in shot = creating anxiety for viewer. Exasperating ptsd, via unpredictable and not pertaining to journalist ‘project’). Tiffany is not a respectful ( or even a ‘real’ journalist).

Mr. Miles is either set-up or a fake actor.

Did he attend a court hearing? Maybe.

GOD BLESS OUR FINEST. When they go on strike (for disrespect) we will all be running for our lives.

You liberals that oppose gun ownership are full of BS. You use every shot fired as an excuse to remove guns from every American. This nation of gun owners has the lowest percentage per population of gun assaults in the world. The highest percentage per population in America is in the strictest gun control cities in our nation. Look at the FBI Statistics for my proof.

Love how they scream assault rifle. So if this wack used 10/22 rifle or pistol, they would still scream gun control. Chicago has toughest gun laws in the free world, but yet they have 40 people shot in one weekend. Nj has second toughest gun laws but yet 5 people are shot 1 killed in newark NJ the other day. Why is it where liberal left rein and run government they have the highest poverty, highest crime, largest illegal aliens, and illegal gun incidents? Because only law abiding Americans follow the law. Liberals want all Americans to be sheep so they can be slaughtered. Nazi’s communist and dictators alike all instituted gun control and gun registration and confiscation. Ask the jews of ww2. Had them register their gun and then confiscated them and the mass slaughter began. Same happened in russia after the czar fell and same in china in 1911 revolution and in the 1948 Again.

Gun control is about intellectual thought control and power over the people to prevent the people from rebelling or countering illegal acts by tyrant government. Clear and simple.

You want a free AMERICA? Vote TRUMP 2020.
