Screenshot/Twitter/WJLAA Pentagon cop accused of fatally shooting two men he “thought” were stealing a car in the parking lot of his Maryland condo complex this week has a history of whipping out guns in his building, according to video from last year that now has law enforcement scrutinizing the officer more closely.David Hall Dixon aimed a firearm at a homeless woman in the lobby of his apartment complex one evening in May 2020 and barked at her to leave, footage shows. Takoma Park Police plan to bring charges against him “for his actions in assaulting” her, WJLA reports.BREAKING: Multiple sources have confirmed this is officer David Dixon, who was just arrested for killing two people, pulling a gun on a homeless woman who wandered into his building in May 2020. @fox5dc pic.twitter.com/0TJRJjs38S— Evan Lambert (@EvanLambertTV) April 9, 2021 Dixon had reportedly told the woman to exit the building after a series of disruptions. When she did not, he returned to his apartment and brought back what appeared to be a shotgun. He pointed the weapon at her and repeated his commands to vacate the premises, and she did, wheeling a red shopping cart out with her. Dixon followed her through the doors. He did not fire the gun.Dixon, an officer with the Pentagon Force Protection Agency since 2019, has been charged with two counts of second-degree murder for allegedly killing Dominique Williams, a 32-year-old Hyattsville resident, and James Lionel Johnson, a 38-year-old District Heights resident, in the parking lot of the same building on Wednesday morning. Dixon was arrested Friday and remains in jail without bond. He has been put on administrative leave from the Pentagon Force.Relatives described the two victims as best friends. Johnson was a father of three, including an infant. His cousin Marcus Cornegay said in a press conference on Friday: “He treated everyone that crossed his path with love and respect, like they were family. We as a family are really struggling with this trying to put logic around why he was taken from us.”A family attorney, David Haynes, said Johnson and Williams were “shot and killed in cold blood, for no reason, with no justification.”This is a photo of James Johnson, 38, of District Heights. @TakomaParkPD say an off-duty Pentagon police officer, David Hall Dixon, shot Johnson Wednesday after he thought he saw him breaking into a car. He had three children.

According to charging documents reported on by The Washington Post, Dixon identified himself as an off-duty Pentagon officer and told the police that he was leaving for work when he noticed a Lexus, with its headlights off, driving through the parking lot.He said he saw one of the men in the Lexus trying to break the window of another car in the parking lot earlier. He said he confronted the men in the Lexus but they “gassed it,” and attempted to run him over, prompting him to open fire.But surveillance footage showed Dixon firing as the car drove away, the charging documents say.While authorities determined that an attempted car theft had indeed taken place, they said the car with the three men inside “no longer presented an immediate threat that would have justified the use of deadly force.”Takoma Park Police Chief Antonio DeVaul said on Friday that Dixon had “no lawful or justifiable reason” for firing his service weapon: “He was a civilian who acted as a civilian, who happened to be a law enforcement officer in another jurisdiction.”DeVaul added that Dixon’s overview of events “was inconsistent with the evidence and facts in the case.”Williams and Johnson were driven to nearby St. George’s hospital for treatment of gunshot wounds in their upper backs, wounds a medical examiner said were consistent with being fired on from behind. Both died there.A third man, Michael Thomas, 36, was driving the car. Dixon faces additional charges of attempted second-degree murder for opening fire on Thomas, as well as reckless endangerment and use of a handgun in commission of a felony. Thomas has not been charged with a crime. Dixon is not alone on the Pentagon Force in drawing his service weapon while off-duty. Another officer shot a 16-year-old he alleged was robbing him the evening of March 24 in Washington, D.C. The acting director of the bureau said leaders would conduct trainings in response to both incidents “to ensure [officers] have a full understanding of their off-duty responsibilities.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Click CVID on the terminal for global data on cases and deaths.U.S. Has Some 54 Million Doses in Stock (4 p.m. NY)Almost a quarter of Covid-19 vaccine doses distributed across the U.S. haven’t been administered, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.While the CDC data don’t specify reasons, health officials have expressed concern about distribution equity and vaccine hesitancy, notably among rural and minority populations. Of some 233 million doses delivered nationwide, 179 million, or about 76%, were reported administered as of Friday.The CDC says some vaccine will always be kept back to maintain inventory, including for second shots. Alabama, Alaska, Georgia, Mississippi and Wyoming have the lowest rates of administering first doses they have in hand.About 68 million people in the U.S., or 20.5% of the population, are fully vaccinated and 34.5% have had at least one dose. Among people 65 and older, 59% are fully vaccinated and 77% have had at least one dose.Colorado Provider Cuts Use of J&J Shot (2:10 p.m. NY)A Colorado health care provider will stop administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at its three mass vaccination sites following adverse reactions.Peter D. Banko, chief executive officer of Centura Health, said in a statement Friday night the decision was based both on the reduced shipments of the J&J vaccine from the federal government as well as 11 reported reactions at one vaccination site. Governor Jared Polis and the U.S. Centers of Disease Control said they looked into the reactions -- which included dizziness and nausea -- and determined there was no reason for concern.Centura Health said the J&J vaccine is “safe and effective” and that it will continue to use it in doctors’ offices and ambulatory care clinics.Minneapolis Spike Leads U.S. Metro Areas (1:30 p.m. NY)Weekly Covid-19 cases in 10 U.S. metro areas increased the fastest in Minneapolis, home to companies such as 3M Co. and Target Corp., according to data through Thursday compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Cases increased 27% in the Minneapolis area, followed by rises of more than 20% in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and Detroit. Adjusted for population, new cases over the seven-day period rose the most in Detroit, Grand Rapids and Buffalo, New York. Minneapolis ranked sixth by that measure.Italy Cases Slow (12:02 p.m. NY)Italy reported 17,567 new coronavirus cases Saturday, 17% less than than 7 days ago in another sign the outbreak is slowing in the original epicenter of the pandemic in Europe.Pressure on hospitals is decreasing with Covid-19 patients falling for a fourth consecutive day.Italy will ease lockdown restrictions in most regions, including the one around Milan, from April 12. All retail businesses will be allowed to open, and people will be given more freedom to move around within their municipalities.Schools will reopen with some limitations. Bars and restaurants however will remain operating only for takeout orders and travel to other regions will still be mostly banned.Merkel Presents German Lockdown Plan (10:43 a.m. NY)Chancellor Angela Merkel’s governing coalition agreed on proposed nationwide rules for lockdowns and curfews in a bid to force compliance by some regional governments. Hot-spot designations would be based on per capita infections at the county level, according to the draft law seen by Bloomberg on Saturday.Merkel’s biggest hurdle is parliament’s upper house, where her governing parties lack a majority. Germany hospitals have come under strain after Covid-19 infection rates began rising in February, though vaccinations have picked up and reached daily records this week.U.S. Top Court Eases Worship Curbs (10:24 a.m. NY)A divided U.S. Supreme Court eased California’s curbs on at-home religious services, adding to a string of orders that have freed worshipers from state and local restrictions designed to stem the Covid-19 pandemic.In an unsigned 5-4 order issued late Friday night, the court cleared two Northern Californians to resume hosting weekly Bible studies and communal worship for eight to 12 people.U.S. Cases Continue to Accelerate (8 a.m. NY)The U.S. added almost 81,000 new cases Friday as the virus spreads fast in pockets around the nation, especially in the Midwest, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University and Bloomberg. The seven-day average has risen for five consecutive weeks.Another 962 deaths were reported Friday, down for the second day, the data show, amid a general decline in fatalities. The U.S. recorded 4 million vaccine doses on Friday, as the pace picked up again after the Easter and Passover holidays, according to the Bloomberg Vaccine Tracker.Italy Companies Cut Growth Forecast (7:53 a.m. NY)Italy’s biggest industrial lobby group cut its forecast for economic growth after a surge in infections in the country earlier this year.Confindustria now sees Italy’s economic growth at 4.1% this year, 0.7 percentage points below its October forecast, after the health crisis led to a weaker than expected performance in the final quarter of 2020 and first quarter of 2021. It said the new forecast hinges on progress in vaccinations in Italy and the rest of Europe.Astra Shot Linked to Clots: Study (6:53 a.m. NY)A Norwegian study into blood clots and abnormally low levels of platelets in five people who were given the AstraZeneca vaccine for Covid-19 has found that their condition was a vaccine-induced syndrome, according to an article in the New England Journal of Medicine.“By providing a link between thrombosis and the immune system, these results strengthen the view that vaccination may have triggered the syndrome,” the article cited the study as saying.Denmark and Norway are avoiding use of the Astra vaccine even though it’s been approved for use there, saying they need more time to review the risks. Sweden and Finland are only offering it to people over the age of 65.EU Predicts Rapid Vaccine Pace (5:32 p.m. HK)Europe could have fully vaccinated 70% of adults before the U.K. reaches its own target of one dose for all over-18s by the end of July, Thierry Breton, the European commissioner leading Brussels’ vaccine task force, said in an interview with the Guardian.Europe was expecting 360 million doses from five manufacturers in the second quarter, with European factories set to produce 200 million shots a month by September for an overall capacity of 2 to 3 billion by year end. The “extremely rapid” increase in European production capacity should allow the EU’s 27 nations to compensate for first-quarter shortfalls and allow “an almost normal tourist season,” Breton said.Airlines Want Probe of U.K. Test Price (5:05 p.m. HK)Global airline body IATA called on the U.K. Competition and Markets Authority to launch an inquiry into pricing of Covid-19 tests for travel, as separate research showed travelers had to pay twice as much for the PCR tests in Britain as they do in much of Europe, the Guardian reported on Sunday.While the cheapest U.K. pre-departure PCR tests are available for 60 pounds ($82) -- the subsidized rate for passengers at Gatwick Airport -- most travelers are being charged an average of 128 pounds, more than double the price for much of Europe, according to research from the Association of British Travel Agents and the Airport Operators Association.Jet2, one of the biggest tour operators in the U.K., postponed all holidays until June 23 citing lack of clarity from the government, the Guardian reported in a separate story. The tour operator said “not knowing when we can start to fly and where we can fly to” led to suspension of flights and holidays.Russia Cases Slow, Deaths Stable (4:09 p.m. HK)Russia reported 8,704 new Covid-19 cases in the last 24 hours, down from the 9,150 reported a day earlier as the caseload continues to stabilize. Authorities reported 402 deaths yesterday from the virus, unchanged from the previous day.New Wave Swamps India’s Hospitals (12:34 p.m. HK)India is facing an escalating health crisis, with its second wave of virus infections hitting record highs, overwhelming hospitals around the country as supplies of intensive care beds and vital drugs come under pressure.Across the South Asian nation, from the wealthiest and also the worst-hit state of Maharashtra to its most populous, Uttar Pradesh, reports are emerging of hospital beds running short and immunization centers turning away people as they run out of vaccines. India reported more than 145,000 new infections Saturday, and with over 13 million virus cases lags behind only the U.S. and Brazil.U.K. Urges Mourners Not to Gather (12:29 p.m. HK)U.K. officials urged people not to gather or lay flowers following the death of Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth II’s husband, a sign of how longstanding traditions will have to be put aside due to the pandemic.
