A man who allegedly opened fire on a highway in Tennessee, killing one person, has reportedly said he was troubled by incidents involving black people and law enforcement officers.

Suspect Lakeem Keon Scott, who allegedly targeted police officers on Thursday morning, revealed he had been angered after two black men were killed by officers, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

Investigators said Scott killed one person and injured three others, including a police officer, with all of the victims white.

The suspect is said to have had two guns when he allegedly shot at a motel in Bristol, Tennessee, and then at several passing cars.

When he was confronted by police, he fired at the three officers who responded.

The suspect was shot by the officers and is being treated at a hospital. He has not yet been charged.

The announcement came just hours after 12 officers were shot at a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas by a man who police said was angry about the police shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

Then he should have gone to Chigaco where there have been over 2,000 shootings since January 2016
