Video of Dallas shooter Isaack Clyde goes viral

Dallas: A gunman identified as Brian Isaack Clyde started shooting near the entrance of Earle Cabell Federal Building in downtown Dallas on Monday.

Clad in tactical gear and carrying an assault rifle, the man ran when security forces returned fire. He was hit by bullets and fell in a parking lot across the street.

Police have yet to give motive behind the gunman’s act, but local media has come up with something which might have led him to the crime.

NPR reported that a since removed June 9 video posted on Facebook page shows Clyde Army veteran and recent community college graduate, standing in a darkened room with a military-style weapon. He mentions a coming “storm,” then says, “I’m not without defense.” In a post Saturday he said he “decided to finish getting all of my mags. 2 40 rounders and 8 30 rounders total.”

The Dallas Morning News reports that Clyde also had shared memes tied to the misogynistic “incel” subculture, or “involuntary celibates” — socially isolated men who blame women for their inability to enter into romantic relationships.

The incident was captured on cameras from several stories above, and a single still photograph by Dallas Morning News photographer Tom Fox, who happened to be at the courthouse on another assignment at the time.
