Body-Camera Footage Shows Baltimore Police Officer Run Toward Gunfire, Make Arrest

Body-camera footage released by the Baltimore Police Department on Tuesday shows a city police officer rushing toward the sound of gunfire as it erupts half a block away, then making an arrest of an alleged gunman.

Officer Joseph Rodgers’ swift response to the deadly April 19 shooting drew fresh praise from the department this week after WMAR-2 News first published the footage Monday.
