24. Downtown Dallas Firing
On the unfateful day of July 7, 2016, a group of heavily armed snipers targeted some police officers in Dallas. This resulted in the killing of five of the officers and injuring nine others.
The gunman was identified as Xavier Johnson who wanted to kill white men as he was angry over police shootings of the black men. This incidence was a counterattack to the increasing racism in the U.S.
The shooting took place at the end of a protest in Minnesota and Louisiana that had occurred in the preceding days. This peaceful led march turned violent had triggered these killings.
