EarlierMedia are reporting an armored van, with what appears to be gun ports on rear, opened fire overnight in front of the Dallas Police Department. Video Below

This video shows the Police Department fire alarms have been set off.  You can see the fire alarm strobes flashing.  Moments later an officer approaches the van, then quickly retreats (probably saw rifle barrel) seconds later automatic fire from the rear of the van with numerous hits to the police car behind the van.

In this Tweet video you see a shorter segment:

This next video shows the van moments later driving into a police vehicle as the police open fire.  [“Twitter user @madwho12 caught the suspect’s van ram a police vehicle as shots ring out in front of the station”]:

DALLAS – Gunfire was reported just after midnight Saturday outside the Dallas Police Department headquarters.   According to News 8’s Rebecca Lopez, police sources say a suspect fired numerous shots at DPD headquarters from a van then led officers on a chase.

The chase apparently ended on Interstate 45 at Interstate 20. I-45 was shut down and Dallas SWAT was called in.  Police have surrounded the suspect’s van near Hutchins.

Twitter user Janin Ruiz (@janinruiz1) posted video of the shooting from a nearby building (Warning: NSFW language):

The vehicle is registered out of Georgia:

Appears to be former SWAT vehicle:

    Background for James Boulware 5/1/2013
    The Paris Police Department says a man considered armed and considered dangerous after he obtained firearms, ammo, and body armor and then threatened violence against his family, churches, and schools has been apprehended by sheriff’s deputies in Paris Wednesday morning.

    Paris Police Chief Bob Hundley says the Lamar County Sheriff’s Office took James Boulware into custody in the 1700 block of Lamar Avenue around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.

    “At 11:24 A.M. on May 1, 2013, James Lance Boulware was observed leaving his residence in the 1300 block of Fairfax by a Lamar County Deputy. Boulware was followed until back up could arrive and stopped by Paris Police Officers along with the Lamar County Deputies in the 1900 block of Lamar Ave. where he was taken into custody without incident on two felony warrants out of Dallas County. Boulware was transported to the Lamar County Jail. No weapons were located in Boulware’s vehicle,” Hundley said in a press release Wednesday afternoon.

    So we have a weird explanation for a motive. We have multiple people standing around taking cell-phone video while bullets are zipping by them, we almost immediately know the suspect and his race, have all sorts of info about the guns used already, fire alarms went off in the police station to draw all the cops outside, multiple rounds fired from an armored vehicle at nearly point blank range and no cops hit….

    Hmmm. Are we sure this isn’t Jade-Helm? Profile of the guy sounds like the typical right-wing tea party, sovereign citizen, domestic terrorist they have been screaming about being the most dangerous for months lately.

        My thoughts exactly. This one has false flag written all over it: too much like a Hollywood production. What can such a false flag accomplish? 1) Switch the attention away from actual cop killers (blacks and Muslims, the new “Us-is”) to “preferred” bad guys, i.e. whites; 2) further demonize whites who may resist the implementation of Jade Helm, or just whites in general; 3) another excuse for grabbing guns and all assorted paraphernalia; and finally, 4) create a MEDIA SENSATION to distract the nation from the 2nd TPP vote on Tuesday, which will certainly pass the bill. That’s the most important one, in my opinion, because they know many Americans are highly opposed to the TPP. This is JUST LIKE the Boston Marathon Bombing, ANOTHER false flag in my opinion, which was acted on Monday to distract gullible American viewers away from any knowledge of the banking crisis in Cyprus which rolled out the new banking technique of the “Bail-in,” coming to a bank near you very soon.

They then proceeded to show weapons he owned taken from his home and linked it to the story about his behavior and his upset. Now they’re using the same story as proof that the guy is unstable. This is how the left, including people like o-bama, grow their gun-grabber constituency. The left and the media pull this crap all the time – show a photo of something unrelated as though it was related in order to form a link in the minds of the sheeple too stupid to actually read and think about what they’re seeing. It’s called propaganda. It’s also known as yellow journalism. It’s unfortunate seeing it repeated on blogs.

    The local Dallas news is covering this live. They are saying that the police are not sure if the attacker is alive or dead. They are afraid to approach the van so they are going to use robots to approach the van and smash in the window.

    In police chases, people usually head for familiar territory. The guy is from Paris – Dowdy Road or Hutchins is nowhere close, but I guess he may have seen I-45 and made a run for it, and was trying to circle around 635 counter-clockwise to get to I-20 east.

    What is this guy thinking?

    Maybe he thought he would drop off the bombs, then get away untouched? Or, make a point with a suicide mission? If so, he needs to have shared his manifesto somehow.

    Whatever he was thinking, he really got out of the dense urban area quick, to a region where any bombs going off would be a lot less damaging. And a lot easier for the police to have a clean shot at him.

If he wanted to go out in a blaze of glory or commit suicide by cop, why get an armored vehicle? Why wouldn’t even one officer have been hit or grazed? Who pulled the fire alarm inside the DPD that brought the cops out? Who sold the van? What department or who did it belong to prior to the alleged ebay sale? Why were there four duffel bags but only one was “loaded”? What happened to the other guys that came out of the van? The chief said at the 3:30am presser that they were being pursued on foot. Why would a lone nut have three other guys with him? Why not a drop of info on them but a huge story behind Boulware? Why did this happen late on a Friday night when the media is asleep and traffic is light? Why choose the metropolitan area closest to the most recent trumped up racial incident (McKinney)?

    Ah well, expect the usual BS boilerplate condemnations of all who still think they can still think for themselves. Oh, BTW, during Katrina the New Orleans 1st District police station came under heavy and sustained fire from the public housing projects right next door – I remember it briefly making local news before the government and press stomped the incident back into obscurity, don’t remember that ever making the national news. Then again, that was then (evil blue-eyed devil Bush government days) and this is now (enlightened, progressive, benign hemorrhoid days). Bet this single incident will eclipse the usual Chicago/Detroit/Camden shootings that happened last night – but then this is special, it’s of a group whose behavior won’t be excused or ignored by the press.

      Czar – while I was getting the live coverage from WFAA, the Black woman newscaster was reading info on the 2013 incident – Boulware was at his Ma’s home, he walked into room with her, was ranting about North and South Korea, then ranting about Jews and Christians –

      then Mom got upset with him (blaspheming?) and when she fussed at him, he choked her.

      So, he may not be the scary White Christian desired as a narrative.

      –More likely, just an angry, dissatisfied narcissist. In a narcissist’s world, there may not be a lot of room for a competing God, so they are often agnostic or atheist. Or warp a religion to fit them (Vernon Howell AKA David Koresh).

      We like to talk about successful narcissists, those suave, self-centered rule-the-world guys, but there are people who are narcissistic and are simply not very competent at enough stuff to sustain a successful life. They live at home with mom, and have hobbies that make them feel competent in some small domain – firearms, home-brewed beer, whatever.

      A narcissist will crack at a “narcissistic injury:” – something clearly exposes the facade of super-competence. Being dumped by the beautiful girlfriend, etc.

      My guess is this guy followed the right-wing anti-government stuff regularly, was regularly having conflict and dissatisfaction with the world, and was never far from blowing up. My guess is something motivated him at this point in time to go ahead and buy an armored car, head to Georgia to get it, and come back home.

    They say the plan is to soak the van – soak the black powder of the bombs.

    I would be afraid of boobytrap.

      from silent helicopter long-view on CBSDFW, no action to see; just bad-guy van in parking lot.

        bad guy apparently dead.
        they suspect at least one bomb – black powder – in van.
        they are supposedly trying to flood van or otherwise get bomb(s) wet to ruin bomb(s).

        I cannot find live coverage anywhere, including the DFW talk radio stations, or the police scanner feeds available at broadcastify.com for the Dallas area.

          Thanks for that TLD. This is really weird. At first they were giving way too much info regarding suspect/situation. Now, it’s like they’ve shut down all info.
          This just doesn’t pass the smell test.

    meanwhile…..where are the other (three?) “suspects” who may have also been involved in this ?
    and who are they ?
    if “Boulware” is, in fact, now deceased, since he has not responded in several hours, he won’t be able to give much information.

      Yeah, we just let the POtuS disarm the people (OK, just ‘certain’ people) and demilitarize the police and everything will be fine as frog hair

      Pathetic. Like nearly every one of these cases, two common facts:
      1 the bad guy had the weapons illegally – this guy had legal history and so is unlikely to be allowed to have guns; 2 mental illness – hello?! – the common theme over and over – recognized mental illness, but the treatment “system” fails to deliver care in the necessary way to maintain safety.

      Open carry and campus carry has nothing to do with this guy’s episode. CHL has very little – owning/carrying rifle is far more lenient than CHL in TX, and so also would be getting black powder for muzzle-loader rifle or whatever black powder is regularly used for.

      • The trouble is, we have to deal with these things honestly. Honest government would help. Obama and Holderette chomp at the bit to take away guns from insomniacs and sad vets. Those who want to stop that injustice have to block anything the lying radicals do. And Cankles prepares to sell her moving disaster as the middle ground.

        So it’s probably no surprise I see a thousand Wacos if the lying harpy wins. As a best-case scenario. A thousand Benghazis more likely.

        It seems that the issue in this story, which may be a fairy tale in the first place, were the explosives, which have absolutely zero to do with gun laws.

        And maybe I missed it, but I don’t remember hearing much from the gun grabbers when the issue was Islamic terrorists going after art contest attendees.

    1pm central – I look at NBC DFW:

    So, for the most part, the acute emergency may be over. NBC DFW seems to have the most coherent coverage of events up to present.

    I’m intrigued by the beginning of this incident. Apparently it started at 0430, and there were several individuals who had their cameras ready to start filming. The first, longer clip was in place and running even before the shooting began. With chatter and music in the background. How did they know? If this is Jade Helm related, it is convenient the show began at 0430, the time when so many Army activities tend to begin.

      Yup, how did this creep all of a sudden get access to so many weapons and modify his van to look like a military tank. That it exploded is interesting getting rid of said useful idiot.

        It appears he purchased a used CIT (Cash in Transit) van – the type private security companies use to do cash or valuables pickups and dropoffs or to service ATM’s.

            Let me clarify. I don’t know if he purchased it, stole it, had it donated to him ….

            My point was I believe the product was already armored, he didn’t have to do any modifications, and that there is a thriving market for used hardened CIT vans and assorted vehicles.

            It looked to me like, so to speak, an “off the shelf” product, not something he engineered/created himself.

            As far as any specific details about how he came into possession of the van, I have no idea. I’m not really following this story this closely because I believe it’s all made up crap and any info disseminated will be highly crafted misdirection.

    Came in late to this story, and it seems to be “over” at least for now (can’t find any livefeeds that work.)

    There are just too many well-scripted moments in this whole affair for me to think it’s anything but a put-up job. We’ve gone from Waco, where oddly among hundreds of people there’s nobody that was videoing anything on their cell phones, to this um, narrative… that has a bunch of just ordinary folks, who are just having an ordinary party with loud music at 4:30AM, like you do, you know, in the building across the street from the PDHQ; with windows wide open, ready for a gunfight. Right.

    Um, like, you know, I just don’t believe much of anything that I’ve heard about this here deal.

    Except that it sure does look like another way of gulling the LIVs into giving up their guns; if so, I hope Texans let them know where to put it, and I’m pretty sure they will.

    Another thing: I don’t believe either the Waco police chief or this one in Dallas. What is it about law enforcement in Texas?

    • The easiest path to a police state, would presumably involve selling the idea to the police. The most interesting question is how few of them need to be in on the idea that it’s being sold. If it can be zero, all the better.

      In any case, I think what we’re seeing lately, is a fully deniable pre-grapple dance between the feds and Texas. Marginalizing Abbott, the slayer of Infanticide Barbie, simply has to be high on their agenda. Having this happen on the day that Abbott was going to sign that legislation, and Cankles announces – sorry. Too much of a coincidence for me. In their eagerness to maximize payback from these things, they tip their hand.

      All of the friends of all of these left-useful psychos need to be throroughly combed through for Clinton-era and Obama-era federal informants. Methinks that useful idiot has morphed quite a bit since the early days of the Marx boys. Useful crazies – with Oswald high on the list – seem to be the suicide bombers of the most cunning end of the left.

    Will it be this kind of thing to bring on Obama’s Executive-Order Martial Law? To bring in UN troops as the “protectorate” when police are exhausted? (Remember in WWII Russia was the “Protectorate” for Finland and Nazis the “Protectorate” for Denmark. Clever way to put UN troops in charge…)
