DALLAS -- Police have confirmed the death of a man suspected of opening fire on police headquarters in Dallas.

Police spokesman Maj. Max Geron confirmed the suspect's death on the department's Twitter feed Saturday.

Police earlier Saturday said the suspect had identified himself as James Boulware and said he blamed police for losing custody of his son and "accusing him of being a terrorist."

However, police say the suspect may not have given his real name and they haven't publicly confirmed the man's identity.

Authorities say the suspect opened fire on Dallas' police headquarters and engaged in a shootout with officers before fleeing in his van. Police surrounded it in a parking lot in nearby Hutchins, where a police sniper later shot him.
