11:04 pm
mike smith and, aaron's. the entire law enforcement community is in mourning. the officers were defending the black lives matter protesters right to walk down the street with their hands in the air saying arms up, don't shoot, and law enforcement source told me, greta that there are two kinds of people in this world those who run towards danger and those who run from it these officers were running to the danger and they were in some cases killed for their service. >> and, of course, rick, they are running to the danger to protect everyone else. anyway, rick, thank you. >> yes. >>the police dispatched audio is absolutely chilling. here it is just as the bullets began to fly. >> we got a guy with a long rifle. we don't know where the hell he is at. garage
11:05 pm
eyewitness amanda was two blocks away from where the gunshots rang out. immediately people began running for their lives. amanda is here to "on the record." thank you for joining us. >> good evening, thank you for having me. >> tell me where you were, what you heard, what you saw. >> well, i will start with it was about 8:45. i was just probably a block and a half, two blocks away from where the gunshots start to do break out. it's what we call below garden. and i believe that the shooting was happening over close to bank of america tower. you guys have seen that. where everything happened it sounded like it was 50 to 100 feet away the gunshots
11:06 pm
started going pop pop pop pop pop. i wasn't the only one looking around. everybody was shocked. the rally was over. the only reason i was out there was to take my dogs for a walk. it was getting late. i really thought the rally was over. the rally seemed calm. it wasn't something that any of us anticipated. it definitely caught a lot of us off guard. as soon as the pops started happening. we started seeing people run everywhere. we didn't know where it was coming from. we start to do see cops. officers hop in their cars and go as fast as they can straight into the crime scene. i must have seen about 30 police officers in their cars just streamlining down main street it was like a nightmare. the worst thing i had ever experienced. gunshots were so loud. i had no idea where they were coming from. i grabbed my dogs and we sprinted back home. luckily i just live a couple
11:07 pm
blocks away. i got home within five minutes and gunshots were still going but i was safe and i got up to my place and i watched the news and that's when i found out that the officers had been shot. and i just prayed that i didn't know them because they are my neighborhood officers. >> how long did the shooting seem to go on? >> >> to be honest it seemed like five minutes. it was constant. a little bit of machine gun where it was pop pop pop pop and then kabam. very loud. >> anyway, amanda, thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you for having me. >> "on the record's" ted williams has been on the ground in dallas investigating this gruesome slaughter of the police. ted knows the pain these police officers and families
11:08 pm
are feeling because ted is a lawyer. before that he was a cop. ted? >> hi, greta. the location in which i'm standing in last night was the line of fire. according to witnesses, bullets were whizzing by this location. earlier this afternoon, we got a chance to walk around the crime scene. take a look at what we found. if you look over my shoulder here, you will see where everything is frozen in time. as you see that suv that's where it's last night. you see all the cars down there. this is where they were last night. this is one very gigantic crime scene. i talked to state, local, and federal law enforcement officers. and they are all here processing this crime scene. if you look down here over my shoulder, you'll see where there's several or
11:09 pm
more police cars. it was in that location that a law enforcement officer confronted michael xavier johnson, shot him in his bullet-proof vest. michael xavier johnson then returned fire, shooting the police officer. then standing over the officer and shooting him at point blank range. and then, greta, at that stage, he ran into this building here. and it was in this location that he was shooting and from what we have been told in the direction in which i'm now standing, bullets were coming in this direction and, greta, it was also in this location that law enforcement officers cornered michael xavier johnson for four hours they tried to get him to come out. when he wouldn't come out, they decided that they were not going to put any more of their men in jeopardy, men and women and what they decide to do do was to sandy robot in with explosions and
11:10 pm
it was in that location over there that michael xavier johnson died as a result of being blown up. and, greta, the investigation over my shoulder continues here tonight. >> ted, i just want to take a few seconds. you're a former police officer. i can't even imagine what the police are feeling. i mean about -- they knew the five were killed and murdered and then you have got the families. what a horrible night. what a terrible thing to happen. >> it is a very terrible thing to happen when you look in the face of the men and women in this police department, you can see the chill. can you see the emotion that has been drained out of them. but, yet, they are out here, greta, in their uniforms serving the people of this
11:11 pm
city. >> and, to think, these police last night. i mean, the irony of it, they were protecting the right of protesters who were protesting the police because of the two shootings in minnesota and louisiana. so the police were out there protecting the protesters so they could peacefully protest and they themselves all of a sudden get a target on the back and they are ambushed and executed themselves, five of them. >> it shows utter lack of respect for what these brave men and women do. you're absolutely right. these protesters were here. they were actually serving and protecting them, greta. >> you know, i must read something from black lives matter. they issued a statement today. what the statement says in part it says this: to assign the actions of one person, that's this killer to an entire movement is dangerous and irresponsible. and that same message, black
11:12 pm
lives matter, they can't assign -- because of the police bad contact with few police to the entire police community in the nation. we have to both begin looking at ourselves on all of this? >> this is not a time for hatred and vitriolic to come out. we need to find some kind of a prescription because we all have to live together here, white, black, and. >> do you know what the thing is, ted? the thing is that everyone has to look at his own conduct and quit blaming everybody. we are never going to get any better because there are a few bad people out there. but there are so many god people. we have got to quit acinning blame to all these groups no matter what group it is. >> greta, you're absolutely right. we all need to take responsibility and, again, we all need to try to come
11:13 pm
together. and now dallas has to unfortunately come together and send five of its finest home. >> indeed. and there are two families in louisiana and minnesota who,like wise feel the pain as well. awful lot of pain going around tonight. ted, thank you for joining us. >> absolutely. >> all the chaos and tragedy dallas police are pleading for support from the community. >> we're hurting. our profession is hurting dallas officers are hurting. we are heart-broken. there are no words to describe the atrocity that occurred to our city.
11:14 pm
all i know is this must stop, this divisiveness between our police and our citizens. you see video footage after video footage of them running toward gunfire from he will elevated position with no chance for them to protect themselves and to put themselves in harms' way to make sure citizens can get to a place of security so please join me in applaud ing these brave men and women who do this job under great scrutiny, under great vulnerability, who literally risk their lives to protect our democracy. we don't feel much support most days.
11:15 pm
let's not make today most days. please, we need your support to be able to protect you from men like these who carried out this tragic, tragic event. >> former nypd commissioner howard schaffer goes "on the record." good evening, commissioner. and, you know, this is -- it's hard to even describe tonight and last night. but when you hear the chief of police say we are hurting, we don't feel much support most days, it proximate causes ever so more painful what's going on there your thoughts tonight, sir. >> it's a horrible tragedy. the first thing i want to do is express my condolences and prayers to the families of those officers killed and wounded. as the chief said, they're not getting much support. part of the problem here and
11:16 pm
part of the motivation, i believe, from michael johnson is the fact that from the president on down people have been talking about people of color are at risk from the police. and that could not be further from the truth. we have had some incidents like the one in baton rouge, like the one in minnesota, and they are going to be adjudicated. but to broad brush the entire police force across the country is outrageous. >> let me read from you. because i keep bringing this up. i'm going to bring it up throughout the whole show is black lives matter issued a statement and part to assign the actions of one person, that would be that killer johnson, to an entire movement is dangerous and irresponsible. but that's exactly what's happening to the police. every time a police officer does, you know, one police officer does something bad, all of a sudden therein are people complaining it's all
11:17 pm
police officers. it's not all police officers. but the very thing this black lives statement says tonight is something everyone should be paying attention to. do you agree? >> absolutely r. absolutely. if black lives really mattered they would look at hob is killing 95% of black men in america. it's not police officers. it's other black men. it's a ridiculous movement. all lives certainly matter. and what we need to do is stop this war on police. we need to start appreciate what police could to protect us. i think that 30 town hall meetings when i was police commissioner in communities of color. and it was very rare that i heard anything about brutality. what i heard about was send us more cops to protect us from criminals. >> i should note that we are now looking -- these are live pictures. this san honor guard from one of the fall' officers in dallas. commissioner, thank you very much for joining us tonight. >> good to be with you. >> breaking news coverage
11:18 pm

11:21 pm
great time for a shiny floor wax, no? not if you just put the finishing touches on your latest masterpiece. timing's important. comcast business knows that. that's why you can schedule an installation at a time that works for you. even late at night, or on the weekend, if that's what you need. because you have enough to worry about. i did not see that coming. don't deal with disruptions. get better internet installed on your schedule. comcast business. built for business. three blocks from the courthouse it just started going off pow pow pow pow pow and everybody started running everywhere. we heard the automatic fire, the back-to-back fire. it just was wild. >> that's obviously a witness describing that horror last night in dallas. the ambush of the police began about 8:45 local time.
11:22 pm
pete schulte is friends with one of the murdered officers and was one of the wounded officers. he spent all night in the hospital and goes "on the record." good evening, pete. >> good evening, greta. >> i don't know, pete, it's like each person -- i don't know what to say to each guest. the horror of this, you know, of this and the suffering. so i guess let me start first for your injured friend. is he going to make it? >> yes. he is going to be okay. he was actually released from the hospital this morning. i was able to talk to him briefly. he doesn't know a lot about what happened and obviously we purposely didn't tell him. we just want him to go home. take some pain medication and get some sleep. is he going to have a road ahead. they decided not to do surgery. so he still has the bullet in his upper body by his shoulder. and they have to make that decision later. it's going to be a long road to recovery for him and other injured officers. the one thing. >> go ahead, greta. >> i wanted to ask you about your other friend who didn't make it you know, they are all heros in different ways.
11:23 pm
but when i read the background on this particular police officer and i guess if i read the pack ground on all of them i would feel equally as horrible. tell me about this police officer who was killed. >> that police officer had been on the dallas police department for over 20 years. i had another mutual friend who was on the dallas police department text me earlier when we start to do hear the names of the officers who had been killed and he told me goes, pete, this really hits me hard because this particular officer saved my life 12 years ago. you look at all that, greta, you go to the domino effect of how these incidents effect not only the police officers immediate families but the entire police family. and that's what's going to be happening over the next week to 10 days as we start going to the funerals to lay these hoes to rest. we start looking at how does this effect everybody in general. you know, talking about the political side of it, and i heard some of the guests talking earlier about black lives matter. we have got blue lives matter. in last night in dallas in a
11:24 pm
very peaceful city. those two subject groups diverged. i'm not saying that we wanted it to happen but a conversation started. our police chief david brown, david has done a great job here of making sure that he does a good relationship with the citizens from the police department which is why i think we haven't had the other issue, some of the other bigger cities have had following police shootings. respected and now we are learning it was a lone shooter with a high powered rifle was able to do so many carnage. >> pete, i think the statement of black lives matter is such an important one. i keep repeating it tonight. in part they say because they are very disturbed about this shooting in this statement they say to assign the actions of one person to an entire movement is dangerous and irresponsible. that's the very thing that some are doing to police. every time a police officer does something bad. >> exactly. >> they act like it's the whole nation. that's the problem. everyone should start looking at himself and start looking at are you doing the same thing to another group?
11:25 pm
black lives matter? all these lives matter. those lives in louisiana and minnesota, they mattered. those police officers last night, they mattered. but the thing is, it's like to sort of like indict entire groups, that's the problem or part of it. >> i agree. you can't have your cake and eat it too. you are going to apply the same rules to everybody else and apply different rules. they are applying different rules. that's the unfortunate part. >> i hope they are opening their eyes to their own statement. that's why i mention it. i have got to go. i hope they realize they can't indict every police officer, you know, with saying that they are doing all these horrible things. anyway, pete, i will take the last word on that. >> i agree, greta. >> thank you. >> thanks. >> the evil gunman is dead. how did police put a end to that bloody ambush.
11:26 pm
11:27 pm
11:28 pm
11:29 pm
>> starting to shooting. >> all of the cops. i just saw cops bending over, man. it had to be like five or six cops. >> dallas police under attack. a sniper opening fire and murdering five police officers. seven more officers were injured. last night was the deadliest attack on u.s. law enforcement since 9/11. how did the police manage to stop this killer before he killed more? listen as police describe how they took out this murderous gunman. >> we cornered the one
11:30 pm
suspect and we tried to negotiate for several hours. negotiations broke down. we had an exchange of gunfire with the suspect. we saw no other option but to use our bomb robot and place a device on its extension for it to detonate where the suspect was. other options would have exposed our officers to grave danger. the suspect is doe ceased. as a result of detonating the bomb. the reporting that the suspect killed himself is not accurate. we have confirmed that he has been deceased because of the detonation of the bomb.
11:31 pm
our hostage negotiator did an exceptional job getting this suspect to talk before he died during the hours of negotiating that eventually broke down. i want to share with you some of the comments from this suspect. ' suspect said he was upset about black lives matter. he said he was upset about the recent police shootings. the suspect said he was upset at white people. the suspect stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers. the suspect stated he will eventually -- that we will eventually find the ieds. the suspect said he was not
11:32 pm
affiliated with any group, and he state that he did this alone. the suspect said other things that are part of this investigation so that we can make sure that everyone associated with this tragic event is brought to justice. >> fox news correspondent rich edson is live in dallas. rich, before i even ask you a question, i want to clarify something in case the viewers misunderstood me. the killer last night, as the chief said, was not part of black lives matter. that he was acting alone and black lives matter was peacefully protesting consistent with their first amendment, that this guy, you know, he was -- he went rogue. anyway, let me go to you now, rich. what's the latest there? >> that's exactly what police are saying, greta. first off, police are now
11:33 pm
saying that city and state officials are confirming that they believe that he is the only shooter. that he did act alone as part of this. and now they continue the investigation into the suspected shooter micah xavier johnson. 25-year-old. police say they have searched him home and they have found ammunition. rifles. ballistic vests, bomb-making material and personal journal they describe as having combat tactics in it. they also found a manifesto which governor greg abbot the texas governor described as having some deranged ramblings in it. it was clear that this man was disturbed, says the governor. they say they are still trying to figure out and still investigating through his computer contacts and going through the items at his home whether he had any contact with anybody, whether anybody helped him plan this or whether there was any type of effort from others to assist him in what he did last evening or suspect to do do last evening. and, as you mentioned,
11:34 pm
greta, police are saying that there was no coordination with the black lives matter movement. he made those comments saying it was independent of that he showed up at this event last evening which people in town were upset about the police shootings in minnesota and louisiana and showed up to what was otherwise a very peaceful protest and started shooting, according to police officers. 12 officers were shot. seven were injured, according to the police department. and five were killed. we're finally getting some names on those who were killed the police officers. michael kroll the dallas police department. patrick zambreta michael smith and brent thompson of the dallas area rapid transit police department who was also, according to that department. the first officer to have ever been killed in the line of duty for that police department. a vigil took place earlier today in dallas where the mayor had said that this community must rid itself of
11:35 pm
this cancer, he called it, of separatism between the public and the miss department and those who police it. and the briefings continue here in dallas. we have reached out of to the baylor university medical center and parkland hospital here in dallas to try to get a status update on the seven police officers who were injured. they defer to the dallas police department and they have got no update for us. greta, back to you. >> rich, thank you. and right now you're looking live at a black lives matter protest outside the white house. they are protesting two murders or two killings in minnesota and in louisiana. and they are both caught on tape, i might add. last night as running away from danger. the courageous did the courageous running through the gunfire. at the protest with his two children and saw police head straight into danger. what did you see? >> starting out, what we
11:36 pm
saw, was an outpouring of love. the rally itself started at the park. they gathered together and with the help of the dallas police, they decided on the best way to move toward the courthouse. when my family and i arrived, we were a little bit late and we had to sit at a light for 30 minutes waiting for the opportunity to be able to move forward. while we were sitting there, we witnessed people getting out of their cars at the stoplight and joining the movement. we witnessed police officers hugging shaking hands and showing great solidarity with the people who were there and for the peaceful movement that was going on. we made it to the courthouse. there were a few speakers that congratulated us on doing the correct, the respectful, the right thing to show that we're here. we're angry, we're hurt, we're upset. but we are showing love, and we are ready to move forward and find a resolution. he asked for everyone to
11:37 pm
grab your march partner and get ready to return to the park so that we could begin making further plans to move forward. he gave us the word to start moving. once we started moving, billion 35 seconds, literally 35 seconds into us walking back the way from which we came, the first sounds of fire came. sounded like fireworks. everyone got a little bit quiet. we slowed down a little bit. and then the second report they rang out. and a man was coming toward us and he was saying there is an active shooter. run, clear the streets. clear the streets. there is an active shooter. behind him were dallas police officers. they were telling us to clear the area. clear the road. everyone clear the area. went to the buildings, the cars, the parking lot. dallas police officers rushed. the police vehicles rushed toward the area where we're
11:38 pm
heard the shooting and everyone was doing their best to maintain unity, to stay calm. everyone kept saying don't run, stay calm. regroup. we don't know what's going on. >> you know, i feel so horrible for all of you having to go through that i know it was a peaceful protest and i thank you for joining us. and i also i know you served in the u.s. navy. i thank you for your service. >> thank you. >> and texas governor greg abbot goes "on the record" next. let's feed him to the sharks! squuuuack, let's feed him to the sharks! yay! and take all of his gold! and take all of his gold! ya! and hide it from the crew! ya...? squuuuack, they're all morons anyway! i never said that. they all smell bad too. no! you all smell wonderful! i smell bad! if you're a parrot, you repeat things. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico.
11:39 pm
it's what you do. squuuuack, it's what you do.
11:40 pm
11:41 pm
11:42 pm
the dallas police ambush is the deadliest talk in law enforcement in nearly 50 years. just a short time ago texas governor greg abbot went "on the record." governor, nice to see you, sir. >> you too, greta. >> you know, it's a very tough time tonight. i know it's hitting dallas hard, texas hard. but, you know, it's actually resonating across the nation. everyone is hit hard by this. why does this happen, do you
11:43 pm
think? >> well, greta, there was new information revealed today at our last press conference showing more information behind the shooter. it's now been revealed that there is a lone shooter. it was the man who died overnight. and he had a manifesto. and so this shows someone who is just crazed. who was out of his mind, who want to do engage in this type of criminal behavior. and sometimes when you're dealing with someone who may have mental incapacities or dish is is -- deficiencies it's hard to predict why it happened. we continue our investigation into all information like computer records, other records the . eality may be a little bit different than what we assumed yesterday. >> all right. and that may very well be and i understand that the investigation is young. but, none the less, what is
11:44 pm
sitting there, the elephant in the room is that there are many african-americans who are feeling that the police are unfair to them and there are many police officers who feel that they have got an unfair target on their back by some and that the communities aren't supporting them. that's the bigger problem. and so how do we begin to solve that problem? >> we do that by what i spoke of today and that is to focus on two things. first, as a nation, we need to reassert what we have held for two centuries, and that is respect and reverence for police officers, for law enforcement, knowing they put their lives on the line every day to serve and protect. but, two. to show unity. today i called for unity of all peoples across dallas area across the state of texas to unify and support of each other and in support of our state and our future. >> you know, it's sort of interesting though, i think we ought to all begin to look at ourselves. and there is a statement
11:45 pm
issued by black lives matter and here is part of it in which it says: to assign the actions of one person, meaning this killer, to an entire movement is dangerous and irresponsible. and when i read that i thought, you know what? that's also the same problem is when you assign to all police officers the conduct or one or two. it's almost like we are so quick to see what the fault is in the other guy and this statement just says it all. both sides need to look at themselves. >> right. greta, the best example i can use is you may know but your viewers may not. i'm in a wheelchair. i never sat and wallowed in the circumstances that put me there instead, i focused on the future and what i could do. the same thing applies here. we need to stop worrying about casting blame. we need to union phi and focus on building a broader focus here for the people in dallas and texas across the country for the united states of america. we are one people. we need to be one people.
11:46 pm
when americans are unified together, it shows that we can win world wars. we can achieve anything we have dreamed to achieve. that's precisely the focus americans need to have today. and that is to come together to unite to put our forces together. we are stronger together united than we are divided. >> governor, thanks for joining us, sir. >> sure, greta, thank you. >> and dallas police were doing their jobs overseeing a peaceful protest. but in a second, that all changed. they became the target of an ambush. colonel allen west happened to be with the officers before the ambush. he is here next. your car insurance policy is 22 pages long. did you read every word? no, only lawyers do that. so when you got rear-ended and needed a tow, your insurance company told you to look at page five on your policy. did it say "great news. you're covered!" on page five? no. it said, "blah blah, blah blah blah blah blah..."

11:50 pm
peaceful protest turning to chaos and worse multiple
11:51 pm
murders. 'two hours before that deadly ambush, police were prepping to keep the peace. lieutenant colonel allen west is with the dallas police during 7 p.m. role call. he goes "on the record." good evening, sir, i don't know, your thoughts, those protesters certainly had a right to be out there peacefully protesting and i'm sure they appreciated the fact that they had that right and i'm sure that the police were out there to do their best. but now look at the situation. >> well, good evening, greta. and, you know, i think it's important that we go down and give words of encouragement to members of the thin blue line out there each and every day making sure we are safe and secure in our homes and in our neighborhoods. that's what i was doing last night about 7:00 p.m. at the northeast division station which is down the road from where i live. some of those officers had gotten the task to load up their riot gear and head down to downtown. so last night, as i was watching the events unfold, i was really concerned that some of those young men and that i had spoken to may

have been wounded or at worse case killed. but, what we see happening in this country is an incredible atmosphere. it is not just what happened in dallas and the horrific events of last night. but the same has happened in tennessee. it has happened in georgia. my home state. and i went to the university of tennessee. it has also happened in missouri. so, we need to have elected officials -- we need to have individuals that are not out there stirring the pot and speaking out of turn and allow the facts to unfold and allow justice to do what it is supposed to do. >> but what can possibly -- look, what sort of sparked this last go around is the fact that those two shootings, one in minnesota and one in louisiana were caught on tape. everybody saw those. and, i mean, they are unthinkable what we saw on those tapes and i'm sure that there will be -- you know, there will be a criminal process for that. those are unthinkable. then we have peaceful protests because people are

understandably grieved by that. everybody should be greefd by those. then we have this lone wolf who comes in and in the name, he says is he upset about them and he exexecutes five cops plus hurts more. how do we sort this out. >> think about the charles charleston, south carolina. it worked. people did not riot. i have no problem with people going out and participating in first amendment right. why is people out here in dallas out protesting about something that happened in louisiana afternoon minnesota when we had a police department here that had no part in that and next thing you know five people have lost their lives and they had no relevance whatsoever to what happened. they created an atmosphere and they created an environment where this individual was able to go down and take advantage of police officers that were out in the open and i have to tell you, it was horrific

towards danger, not away. running to help, not to hide. running to protect and save others, not themselves. here is what the dallas police chief david brown had to say about these heroes. >> employees join me in applauding these brave men and women who do this job under great scrutiny, under great vulnerability, who literally risk their lives to protect our democracy. we don't feel much support most days. let's not make today most days. >> to chief brown and all law enforcement officers from coast to coast who put their lives on the line every day to protect us, i want you to know we hear you, we appreciate you, we thank you, and, yes, we support you. and that's my off-the-record comment tonight.
