“It was very courageous and brave, if not crazy as well, to open fire on the police headquarters, and now you have this scene, this standoff. So you believe these are the hallmarks of more than one person’s involvement," Whitfield said Saturday during an interview with CNN legal analyst Phillip Holloway.

CNN's senior media correspondent tweeted Sunday morning that Whitfield would "address" her comments on air Sunday.

Dallas police were able to confirm Saturday afternoon that the suspect died in a shootout with police. The suspect told police his name was James Boulware.
