Police Release Body Cam Footage From Methadone Clinic Shooting

Baltimore Police have released bodycam footage from the fatal shooting at the Man Alive methadone clinic on July 15.

Police released the footage to show the officers response in the fatal shooting that took the life of a 52-year-old David Caldwell a phlebotomist at the clinic. A Baltimore police sergeant and another staffer were also injured in the shooting.

In the video, you can see officers arriving and learning that there’s an active shooter inside the building. The officers draw their weapons and enter the clinic, telling other people to get down and out of the way before confronting the shooter.

“Put the gun down!” the officers can be heard screaming at the suspect Ashanti Pinkney. They told the man to put the gun down over a dozen times on the tape, before Sgt. Bill Shiflett can be heard saying, “I will shoot you right here, right now.”

Then you can see the suspect open fire on the officers before the video goes black. Police redacted some of the video out of respect for the victims.
