The armoured van that a man used during a daring assault on Dallas Police headquarters Saturday may have been sold on eBay earlier this week.
Described as a "zombie apocalypse assault vehicle," the van closely resembles the vehicle used by the assailant to ram a police cruiser and flee after firing at the building, the
Dallas Morning News
The van had a Georgia licence plate, and online records indicate that a company in Newman, Ga., sold a similar vehicle on eBay for $8,250, the paper says.
The company that sold it, Jenco Sales Inc., described the vehicle on Facebook as a "Zombie Apocalypse Assault Vehicle and Troop Transport."
"This full armored zombie busting vehicle features convenient gun ports so no zombie juice touches you during a mass zombie take down. It also has benches in the back so you can take turns resting during long Zombie sieges. The tactical step boards are installed for when you only need swords and axes for drive by mow downs," the ad reads.
"The bumpers are made of reinforced steel tubing, so no dents from smashing zombie heads! It's full armor plated and has bullet proof windows just in case you run into other zombie hunting hordes who might try to take this bad boy from you. Like anything, there is a price attached to this fine piece of zombie fighting machinery."
The paper reported that the suspect is believed to be dead after a police sniper shot at him early Saturday.
Police had spent hours trying to negotiate with the man, who identified himself as James Boulware, a 35-year-old with a history of family violence.
