Baltimore-Area Street Looks Like a Warzone in Clip from Cop’s Body Camera

By

Police body camera footage captured at an incident in Baltimore County, Maryland, this month shows a snippet of what unexpected violence our men and women in blue face day after day.

The Official Baltimore County Police & Fire YouTube channel included audio recordings of neighbors’ 911 calls regarding an active shooter incident.

“We just had a house blow up. And the house next to it is on fire,” one caller said.

“It jarred me out of bed. Somebody banging in somebody’s front door, and then I just heard three gunshots,” said another.

When officers arrived at the chaotic scene in Woodlawn on May 8, one building was already engulfed in flames and the suspect stood outside, armed with his handgun and ready to fire.

Bodycam footage showed one officer arrive at the scene, exit his vehicle and immediately come under fire.

The officer took cover behind nearby vehicles and returned fire as other officers arrived on the scene.

Another officer’s bodycam footage recounted the incident as he located the suspect beside a red vehicle and opened fire until the man fell.

Officers dragged the shooter from the area beside the vehicle and apprehended him.
