Parents of Dallas shooter saddened, say son returned from Army deployment a changed man
The parents of Dallas shooter Micah Johnson say they are surprised by his violent rampage and note he returned from an Army deployment to Afghanistan a changed man.
Johnson's father, James Johnson, said in an interview posted on TheBlaze website Monday (http://bit.ly/29y8V5u ) that he "didn't see it coming." Through tears, Johnson says: "I hate what he did."
Micah Johnson, a black 25-year-old from Mesquite, Texas, targeted police officers in Thursday's attack, fatally shooting five and wounding more.
His mother, Delphine Johnson, says that as a child her son wanted to join the police, but that after serving six years in the Army Reserves, he became a "hermit."
The family says Micah Johnson never showed signs of hatred for certain groups of people, but that he hated "injustice."
