Authorities say four others were shot; Will Carr shares the latest details.
An early morning New Year’s Eve domestic disturbance call sparked a mass shooting that has left at least one deputy dead, four others injured and two civilians wounded in an apartment complex just south of Denver.
A Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy was arrested and charged Wednesday with secretly recording footage of a mass shooting at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in January and then releasing it to TMZ, according to BSO.
Michael E. Dingman, 47, was booked at the main jail and released on a bond of $2,000 shortly after he turned himself in around 10 a.m. Wednesday.
The arrest warrant alleges that Dingman used his cellphone to secretly record about 20 seconds of footage near the beginning of the airport shooting and then illegally send the video to the gossip website. The warrant also states Dingman tried to reset his phone to factory settings and submerge the phone in water to cover his tracks.
“This is a deputy who violated his oath, and I hope the truth surfaces and justice is served,’’ said Broward Sheriff Scott Israel.
Two days after five died and six were wounded in a Jan. 6 mass shooting at the airport, video surfaced on TMZ.com showing the shooter walking through a terminal, opening fire on passengers. Esteban Santiago, 26, has pleaded not guilty to 22 federal charges in the case.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office arrested a veteran deputy Wednesday, accusing him of secretly recording security video that showed a gunman shooting at passengers in January at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

Deputy Michael Dingman, 47, turned himself in to his employer’s headquarters in Fort Lauderdale Wednesday morning and was taken to the main jail in that city, Broward Sheriff’s spokeswoman Veda Coleman-Wright said.
Dingman, who was hired in 1996, was charged with tampering or fabricating physical evidence; unlawful use of a two-way communication device; violation of public records law and criminal use of a public record or public records information.
The 20-second video clip that showed the beginning of the mass shooting was a record that was not available for public release because it was part of a continuing criminal investigation, the sheriff’s office said. Dingman

BROOKHAVEN, Miss. (AP) — Authorities in Mississippi said Sunday that a suspect is in custody after eight people were killed in a shooting, including a sheriff’s deputy.
