More chilling 911 calls from Orlando club shooting released
ORLANDO, Fla. — A patron hiding inside the Pulse gay nightclub as a gunman carried out the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history whispered to a dispatcher on a 911 call, “He is going to kill us.”
The 911 call was among more than 20 released Wednesday by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. The sheriff’s office assisted the Orlando Police Department in responding to the June 12 massacre that killed 49 people, including answering 911 calls when the police department’s dispatchers were overwhelmed. Several of the 911 calls were from patrons trapped inside.
The Orlando Police Department has released only a fraction of the more than 600 emergency calls it received during the June 12 club shooting. A lawyer for the city of Orlando said this week in a court hearing involving a legal fight over the release of the records that more calls will be made public soon. – READ MORE
