WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. officials say the Army Criminal Investigation Command has reopened a sexual harassment case against the reservist who gunned down five police officers in Dallas.

The officials say CID is reviewing Micah Johnson's case to see if the documentation was properly handled. Johnson received an honorable discharge from the Army Reserve in April 2015. He was killed by police during the shooting last week.

His lawyer in the harassment case, Bradford Glendening, says he prepared papers for an other-than-honorable discharge in September 2014. Glendening tells The Associated Press that he was shocked to see that Johnson ultimately received an honorable discharge.

The officials are not authorized to discuss the case publicly so spoke anonymously. The Army has declined to discuss the matter.

Johnson's harassment charge stemmed from an incident in 2014 while Johnson was deployed to Afghanistan.
