An unedited, extremely graphic bystander video provided to KDFW and played on air appeared to show a deadly shootout between a suspect in Thursday's shooting in Dallas and a police officer.

The video, credited to Randy Biart, shows a figure dressed in civilian attire carrying what appears to be rifle crouching behind pillars and firing shots. A second individual, wearing what looks like a police uniform, enters the screen and several shots are fired as the first person runs toward him.
