DC Police Give First Aid to Man Five Minutes After Fatal Shooting, Body-Cam Shows


DC police released a second video captured by another officer’s body camera before and during last week’s deadly shooting of Terrance Maurice Parker, a 36-year-old Black man, in Southwest.

Officers with the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) were reportedly responding to a domestic dispute in the 1100 block of 4th Street, Southwest, following an adult woman’s report, when the incident took place on Friday, April 30.

The new footage is 19-minute long, partly redacted, and includes the previously released part. It starts in a police vehicle before the officers arrived at the location.

After the shooting, one of the two policemen is seen seizing Parker’s weapon. The same officer cuts off Parker’s shirt and gives him first aid to stop his bleeding with the help of his colleague, almost five minutes after the shooting.

The video below contains graphic content.

According to a statement from MPD, Parker β€œsuddenly brandished a firearm and pointed it at the female and one of the officers.”

Members of DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) transported Parker to an area hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.

It is not clear in the video whether Parker pointed his gun at officers or the woman in the apartment, but he is seen waving it in that direction.

MPD placed the officers involved in the shooting on administrative leave and launched an investigation.

Anyone with information on the incident may contact MPD at (202) 727-9099.
