It’s the type of call 911 dispatchers get all the time: Someone calling to report a burglary. But it’s who called to report this one that left dispatchers scratching their heads.
FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig has the story:
(911 call – Dispatcher) “Parker County 911, where is your emergency?”
A late-night call for help in rural Springtown, Texas: A man reporting he’s being held at gunpoint.
(911 call – Moore) “I’m not sure. I’m out in the country somewhere. Some guy’s got a gun on me”
That guy is James Gerow, who awoke to find the caller, Christopher Lance Moore, had broken into his house. Gerow grabbed his pistol and asked Moore what he was doing.
(Gerow) “He says ‘unlucky,’ he was just unlucky.”
Gerow took Moore’s keys before the 41-year-old suspect locked himself in his truck and called 911. He wasn’t the only one to call, though.
(911 call – Gerow) “Y’all hurry up now, because my husband’s fixin’ to shoot him.”
Gerow’s wife also calling authorites, who eventually arrested Moore and charged him with felony burglary.
