Dallas police say the slain suspect in the killings of five police officers had bomb-making materials, ballistic vests, rifles, ammunition, and a personal journal of combat tactics at his home.

The department also said in a statement Friday that detectives have interviewed more than 200 members of law enforcement and that “it appears at least 12 officers” fired their weapons when someone opened fired on police Thursday night. It happened during a demonstration to protest the recent killings of Black men by police in Louisiana and Minnesota.

Police killed Johnson using a robot-delivered bomb after negotiations failed.

They say detectives are in the processing of analyzing the information contained in the journal.

Police say officers have been targeted in Tennessee, Georgia and Missouri in the aftermath of two high-profile killings of Black men by law enforcement.

The attack in Tennessee occurred hours before the killing of five police officers in Dallas on Thursday night during a protest. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says the attacker told authorities that he was frustrated by the recent killings by police of Black men in Louisiana and Minnesota.

Police have not disclosed a motive in Friday’s attacks in Georgia and Missouri, which have been described as ambushes.

In a fourth attack early Friday, a motorist fired at a police car as the officer drove by. In all, four officers were wounded. The officer wounded outside St. Louis is in critical but stable condition. The wounded officers are expected to survive.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson has condemned the fatal shooting of five police officers in Dallas as a “cowardly and insane act of terrorism.”

The black civil rights advocate said at a Friday news conference in Chicago that the shootings, which apparently came in reaction to the killing by White police officers of Black men in Louisiana and Minnesota, do not reflect “our struggle for justice whatsoever.”

Jackson notes that last week, the killing of 49 people in Orlando, Florida, was in the nation’s spotlight. He says “too much violence, too much fear make all of us less secure.”

He says his heart is “heavy at the thought of innocent police being killed.” He also spoke with Diamond Reynolds, who livestreamed to Facebook a video in the immediate aftermath of the fatal shooting of her boyfriend, Philando Castile, by police in Minnesota on Wednesday.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has condemned the killing of five police officers in Dallas, saying through a spokesman that “there is no justification for such violence.”

U.N. deputy spokesman Farhan Haq said Friday that “those responsible compounded the suffering that many in the United States feel following the killing of two African-American men over two days.”

Haq says it’s very hard and demanding work to be a police officer anywhere in the world and the secretary-general extends condolences to the families and colleagues of the victims and the Dallas Police Department.

He says the U.N. chief is also calling for thorough and impartial investigations into the killing of the two Black men in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and suburban Minneapolis.

The Dallas attack began Thursday night at a protest over the killings of those Black men. In addition to the five deaths, seven officers and two civilians were wounded.

Obama’s proclamation Friday applies to American flags flown at the White House and on all public buildings and grounds, military installations and Navy vessels. It extends through sunset Tuesday, July 12.

Gov. Greg Abbott ordered Texas flags to be flown at half-staff statewide during the same time period to honor the victims. Five of the officers were killed. The other seven and the two civilians were wounded.

The attack happened during what had been a peaceful protest over this week’s killings by police of Black men in Louisiana and Minnesota.
