Bond denied for Pentagon officer involved in double fatal shooting

A judge denied bond for a Pentagon officer indicted on murder charges in a triple shooting on April 7 that resulted in two deaths, citing David Dixon’s history of “escalating situations into violence.”

Dixon was charged in the deaths of 32-year-old Dominique Williams and 38-year-old James Lionel Johnson, as well as the attempted murder of 36-year-old Michael Thomas, who survived the shooting. [WUSA]
