Police from Baltimore County, Maryland, are forced to shoot a suspect charging them with a knife screaming “Time to die!”
Two officers from Baltimore County, Maryland, are forced to shoot 48-year-old Bryant Junious Palmer after he charges them with a knife when they arrived at his apartment. The officers were responding to reports of a disturbance in the area, and when they arrived they found the disturbance in the form of Palmer attacking them with a knife screaming “Time to die, time to die!”
The footage below is one of the first times Baltimore County Police Department has released the Body Worn Camera footage of a police action in their county. It paints a clear picture that the officer’s lives were indeed in danger, and that they reacted to protect themselves from serious bodily harm at the hands of Palmer.

Immediately following the incident, one officer remains with Palmer and begins rendering first aid to the gunshot wound in his shoulder. The other officer runs outside, while calling for a medic, to retrieve medical supplies from his cruiser before heading back into the apartment to assist his partner.
Officers like this set the standard high across America. Strong work boys.
