TAKOMA PARK, Md. - A surveillance video obtained from a Takoma Park condominium shows a Pentagon police officer who is currently charged with murder training a gun on a person during a previous incident.
David Hall Dixon of Takoma Park is charged with two counts of second-degree murder, as well as related crimes, for he shot two people he thought were breaking into a car to death on Wednesday.
Takoma Park police have identified the victims as Dominique Williams and James Lionel Johnson.
Dixon was off duty when he allegedly shot Williams and Johnson.
FOX 5 has learned that, during a previous incident, Dixon had pulled a gun on a homeless woman who’d entered the condominium.
Takoma Park police indicated that they investigated the previous incident, and Dixon declined to mention that he'd pulled out a gun, saying only that he'd used pepper spray after the woman swung an object at him.
Dixon was not charged with a crime at the time, but now that the video has surfaced, he will face a charge in connection with the incident.
In another incident, Dixon told police that someone approached his car in a threatening manner, holding a hatchet. Dixon says the man backed off when he displayed his service weapon.
The Pentagon Force Protection Agency says it is aware of at least two incidents with local law enforcement involving Dixon. They say they conducted internal investigations and cleared him of any misconduct. They did not indicate whether the Takoma Overlook incident was one of those occasions.
