A search of the shooter's home produced “bomb making materials, ballistic vests, rifles, ammunition, and a personal journal of combat tactics," Dallas PD said in a statement. The officers are now analyzing the content.

Police also said that Micah Johnson had no criminal history, but information obtained by detectives “indicates that the suspect was anArmy veteran” and that some witnesses described him as “a loner.”

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson says that there appears to have been only one gunman in the Dallas shooting, AP reported.
