A homeowner in Seattle’s White Center neighborhood opened fire on a home intrusion suspect while talking to a police dispatcher on a 911 call.
Seattle PI reported that the homeowner could be heard opening fire about 4 minutes into the 911 call.
The following exchange then occurred:
911 operator: Hello, if you can hear me, I need you to talk to me, I need to know what’s going on.
911 operator: Hey, what’s going on?
Homeowner: Where are you?
911 operator: OK, we’ve got officers coming, what’s going on? What happened? I heard shots, what happened?
Homeowner: I had to shoot him, he came after me. I’m in my closet in my bedroom.
The alleged intrusion occurred in late April and on May 15, the NRA tweeted the audio of the 911 call:
DISCRETION IS ADVISED: This is a real-life 911 call from a home invasion in #Seattle. The homeowner was hiding in his closet on the phone with dispatch for more than 4 minutes when the intruder barged in, and the homeowner was forced to defend himself. ➡️ https://t.co/9LQJwldeDl pic.twitter.com/RFtrYeGBmm
