PICTURED: Off-duty Pentagon security officer who is charged with murder after he 'shot and killed two people he thought were breaking into a car'

 The Pentagon officer who allegedly fatally shot two men he believed were breaking into cars in the parking lot of a condominium on Wednesday has been pictured in his Pentagon Force Protection Agency photo.

Takoma Park police have charged David Hall Dixon with murder for the off-duty shooting. 

He faces two counts of second-degree murder and two counts of use of a handgun in commission of a felony, and reckless endangerment. 

The victims have been identified as 32-year-old Dominique Williams, and 38-year-old James Lionel Johnson, and both were pronounced deceased at the hospital. 

Police say Dixon lives in the condominium building where the shooting took place and that the suspects were in fact breaking into cars.

Dixon was taken into custody 'without incident' Friday morning and is being held with no bond at the Montgomery County Detention Center.  

The Takoma Park Police Department stated in a press release that the deadly officer-involved shooting took place just after 5am on Wednesday at Takoma Overlook Condominiums on New Hampshire Avenue in Takoma Park.

According to police, officers responded to the condominium parking lot after receiving multiple reports of shots fired.

They were met at the scene by David Hall Dixon, an off-duty Pentagon Force Protection Agency officer, who told them that he had witnessed 'what he thought was a car being broken into.' 

Dixon confronted the suspected car burglars, who were said to have failed to follow his commands. 

Williams and Johnson then reportedly jumped into a car and tried to flee, at which time the Pentagon officer pulled out his service weapon and opened fire. 


A short time later, the suspects arrived at Prince George's Hospital, where both died from gunshot wounds in their rear upper torso.  

Dixon also fired into a vehicle driven by Michael Thomas, 36, leading to charges of attempted second-degree murder and use of a handgun in the commission of a felony, police stated in a press conference Friday.

Thomas will not be charged with any crimes for his involvement. 

Takoma Park Police Chief Antonio DeVaul said, 'Our investigation revealed that Mr. Dixon’s overview of events was inconsistent with the evidence and facts in the case and that Mr. Dixon had no lawful or justifiable reason to shoot and kill Mr. Williams and Mr. Johnson.'

The incident marks the second time in as many weeks that a Pentagon police officer has discharged his weapon while off duty. 

On March 24, a member of the Pentagon Force Protection Agency shot and wounded a 16-year-old boy who police said tried to rob him at gunpoint in Southeast Washington, DC. 

The Pentagon cop told DC police that he made a failed attempt to wrestle a BB gun out of the teen's hands, and then pulled out his own service weapon and fired a single shot.

The 16-year-old survived and was later charged as a juvenile with assault with intent to commit an armed robbery.
