How police used robot, explosives to take out Dallas sniper in unprecedented way
DALLAS -- Dallas Police Chief David Brown gave an order to his SWAT team after a 45-minute gun battle and two hours of negotiating with a sniper targeting police officers. He told them to come up with a creative plan to neutralize the suspect without putting another officer in the line of fire. In the time it took Chief Brown to get back from updating the public about the ongoing battle, his officers had hatched a plan. It would keep them out of the line of fire and take out the suspect.
