Mesquite, TX – The Mesquite Police Department released bodycam video of the May 4th fatal shooting of 27-year-old Ashton Pinke.
Officers responded to the Audubon Park Apartments on Tuesday after receiving a 911 call with sounds of a struggle and screaming before the caller hung up. Officers arrived and a woman informed them that Pinke had hit her and had a knife. Officers made contact with Pinke and can be heard saying “Don’t do it, don’t do it” before he is seen running toward them. Pinke was seen dropping a “club” and a knife as he was shot. He later died at a hospital. Police say Pinke had a club with batteries and sockets taped to the ends as well as a knife.
