Gunman wearing mask and tactical gear opens fire on Dallas federal courthouse before being shot and killed while fleeing police (14 Pics)

The man who was shot after exchanging gunfire with officers outside a federal courthouse in downtown Dallas on Monday morning has been identified as 22-year-old Brian Issack Clyde.
The suspect in the shooting outside the Earle Cabell Federal Building was pronounced dead on the scene. No one else was injured, according to police.
Police have asked people to avoid the area surrounding 1100 Commerce Street, as a bomb squad recently conducted a controlled detonation of a suspicious device in the suspect's vehicle, which had been parked nearby.
The shooting occurred one block away from where four Dallas police officer and a Dallas Area Rapid Transit officer were killed by a gunman nearly three years ago, on July 7, 2016.

Dallas Morning News photographer Tom Fox said he saw the shooter, wearing a black mask, parked at the corner of Jackson and Griffin streets.
He was said to have a red heart tattoo on his black arm, with some kind of black drawing inside. It appeared as though it may have been an animal.
According to Fox, the man ran, stopped in the street to pick something up, and then opened fire, cracking the glass in the courthouse door.
Multiple witness told NBC DFW that they heard between 15 and 20 shots fired.
'I just ran,' said Don Miles, who had a 9am appointment in the building.
