A 22-year-old masked gunman carrying a military-style rifle and 150 rounds of ammunition was shot by Dallas Police. It could have led to a mass shootout.

Officials identified him as an Army veteran Brian Isaack Clyde of Fort Worth. According to the witnesses, his face was covered and he was wearing body armor. The shootout took place outside the Earle Cabell Federal Building and Courthouse on Monday Morning.

One of the Del Mar College officials acknowledged that Clyde was an extremely bright student who graduated with an associate’s degree in nondestructive testing technology. This builds up the curiosity for knowing the motive behind the shooting which could have led to a series of terror.

At a press conference, FBI special agent Matthew J. DeSarno informed that Clyde was released from Army in 2017. The U.S. Army has verified that Brian Clyde served as an infantryman for about 9 months.

The FBI is working with the Defense Department to examine his record and recognize any partners. The shooter’s gun has also been retrieved, and federal officials are working with the ATF to trace the roots of the gun and how it was acquired by the shooter.

DeSarno also claimed that the whole team is aggressively pursuing each lead in this inquiry to identify family members, colleagues and to get to the bottom of this incident.
