Brian Isaack Clyde, a 22-year-old clad in combat gear and armed with a rifle, died in a shootout with the police near a federal building in downtown Dallas, according to the Daily Beast.

Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were reportedly searching for a device near the federal courthouse.

Clyde was reportedly shot and killed before he could get off any shots.

Dallas Morning News photographer Tom Fox snapped an extreme close-up of Clyde before police shot him.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
