DALLAS — A newly released military report details how the Army reservist who killed five Dallas police officers stole a female soldier's underwear and tried to hide what he did under investigation.

The Army on Friday released a partially redacted report on Micah Johnson, who was killed July 8 in a standoff after opening fire on officers during a rally protesting police shootings.

The investigation into the stolen underwear two years earlier led to sexual harassment allegations against Johnson and his removal from the military. The report also details how he lied about how he got the underwear.

The report does not address why Johnson was discharged honorably. The lawyer who represented Johnson has told The Associated Press that he had expected Johnson to be given a "less than honorable" discharge.
