Dallas gunman studied at self-defense school

The gunman who ambushed police officers in Dallas studied at a self-defense school that advertises teaching various firearm tactics, including "shooting on the move."
    
A person who says he was in charge of the Academy of Combative Warrior Arts in suburban Richardson told The Associated Press on Saturday that Micah Johnson had studied there about two years ago. The man refused to answer additional questions and would not give his name.
    
A Richardson police department report, dated May 8, 2015, noted that Johnson had told an officer he "had just gotten out of a class at a nearby self-defense school." The school is less than 1,000 feet away.
    
The report was made in response to a suspicious person. The investigating officer closed the case just minutes after being called to the scene.
