Emergency Calls Released In Aurora Shooting
AURORA, IL — Just moments into the emergency radio calls from Aurora officers and dispatchers at the scene of the Henry Pratt shooting, you can hear the first report that an officer has been hit by gunfire. “Shots fired. Shots fired,” an officer shouts. Then, another officer: “I’ve been shot.” This week, after careful consideration, authorities released police audio and 911 calls from the unimaginable tragedy Feb. 15 at Henry Pratt Manufacturing.
“This decision was not made carelessly as we understand the troubling nature of these calls, but as a matter of public interest and our ongoing commitment to transparency within our community, we agree that you have a right to hear the courageous souls who helped us bring this horrible tragedy to a swift conclusion,” police said in a statement.
Throughout the more than hourlong police call recordings, you can hear the urgency, the hushed panic, the swift planning between law enforcement, from the moment they entered the 29,000-square-foot building and were met with immediate gunfire, to when they found and ultimately killed the shooter.
