ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Pastors and Dallas city officials attended a prayer vigil at Thanksgiving Square in downtown Dallas on Friday (July 8) in the wake of Thursday's shooting that left five police officers dead. A sniper whose objective was reportedly kill "white people" opened fire on police officers following a march that was held in the wake of the killings of two black men by police in Louisiana and Minnesota. The U.S. Army said on Friday that Micah Xavier Johnson, who sources have identified as the Dallas shooter, had served as a private first class in the Army Reserve and was deployed to Afghanistan from November 2013 to July 2014. The Army said Johnson served from March 2009 to April 2015 and was a carpentry and masonry specialist with the 420th Engineering Brigade based in Texas. He achieved the rank of private first class on May 2010.
