BALTIMORE, MD (WEAA) — Baltimore police have released body camera video of a deadly officer-involved shooting that occurred May 16, on East Lafayette Avenue. 

 

During a news conference Wednesday, Deputy Commissioner Brian Nadeau said officers responded to a home in east Baltimore after a child called 911 saying his father was attempting to stab his mother with a knife. 

 

Police say when they arrived, 49-year-old Timothy Fleming was standing over his live-in girlfriend holding a large knife. 

 

Nadeau says after 2 minutes and 20 seconds of attempting to de-escalate the situation,  Fleming raised the knife in an attempt to stab his girlfriend. 

 

Two officers then fired shots at Fleming, striking him. 

 

Fleming died at the scene.
