Police: Dallas shooting suspect had troubled past

DALLAS (AP) – Authorities in Texas and Utah say a former Utah state trooper suspected in a series of rush-hour shootings near Dallas had an addiction to painkillers, and he was wanted in connection with a recent robbery.

Dallas police think 37-year-old Brian Smith was responsible for at least one shooting death. They won’t talk about a similar killing in nearby Garland, which is out of their jurisdiction. Police say Smith fits the description of the man they were looking for.

Smith is on life support at a Dallas hospital after authorities say he shot himself in the head following a brief stand-off early yesterday.  Full story HERE
