Gunman taken into custody Monday after firing rifle outside of Dallas courthouse
Raw video: Gunman taken into custody Monday after firing rifle outside of a courthouse in downtown Dallas, Texas. The suspect is seen running in the Earle Cabell Federal Building parking lot.
The 22-year-old masked gunman who was shot in an exchange of gunfire with federal officers outside a federal courthouse in Dallas had been discharged from the Army, and was not the subject of any investigation, FBI Special Agent in Charge Matthew DeSarno said Monday.
Brian Isaack Clyde was pronounced dead at a hospital following the shooting outside the Earle Cabell Federal Building. Clyde opened fire about 8:40 a.m., and law enforcement immediately responded, including three officers from the Federal Protective Service who were stationed at the building.
There were no injuries.
Police closed off several blocks around the federal building.
Private 1st Class Clyde served as an infantryman in the Army from August 2015 to February 2017, the Army confirmed to Fox News.

“We are aggressively pursuing all his social media activity,” DeSarno told a press conference Monday afternoon.
His social media profiles showed photos of him with guns and ammunition.
Fox 4 reported photos show him in fatigues, and he said he was stationed at Fort Campbell in Kentucky.
