By the end of the night on July 7, 2016 five Dallas cops would be dead. Fathers and husbands and brothers and sons, some of them cut down from behind before they had a chance to fight. Nine more cops and two civilians would be wounded.

The shootings — just down the street from the city’s other notorious shooting, 53 years earlier — would traumatize Dallas, thrusting it into the anguished national argument about race and justice. News people would storm in from around the world, trying to make sense of what made no sense. 

But first, in the darkness and chaos, a small group of elite cops had to gear up and get the shooter. This is the first full account of what happened inside El Centro College that night. 

It is based on documents, photographs and dozens of hours of interviews with the police officers who tracked down the gunman, engaged him in a fierce gun battle, negotiated with him and meticulously planned and carried out his death.

"Standoff" from The Dallas Morning News isthe first full account of what happened inside El Centro College on July 7, 2016
