Still no explanation for Dallas gunman’s honorable discharge

🕐 1 min read

DALLAS (AP) — Almost a week after the Dallas sniper attacks, it’s still unclear how the gunman obtained an honorable discharge from the military after Army officials sent him home from Afghanistan with a recommendation that he be thrown out of the armed forces.

Micah Johnson served in the Army Reserve for six years before last week’s sniper attack, which killed five Dallas police officers. The 25-year-old was killed by police with a robot-delivered bomb.

An Army spokesman says the Pentagon is reviewing all of Johnson’s records.

An attorney appointed by the military to represent Johnson in a sexual harassment case speculated last week that Johnson’s behavioral record could be more serious. The attorney says he’s now under strict orders not to discuss the matter with reporters.
