VIDEO: Footage Shows Man Pointed Gun at Baltimore Detective Before OIS

Baltimore Police on Thursday identified the 18-year-old man who was fatally shot by a detective during a foot pursuit Tuesday, and released footage from the detective’s body camera that showed the man, Curtis Jamal Deal, point a handgun at the officer before the shooting, reports the Baltimore Sun .

Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said at an afternoon news conference that the shooting was justified, and praised the detective — Det. David Kincaid Jr., a five-year veteran of the force with no previous shootings — for doing what the department and the city expect of its officers.

“I expect police officers to chase people who bail out of cars with guns, that’s an expectation that I have of police officers,” Davis said. “And beyond my expectation, I think it’s the community’s expectation.”
