5-year-old calmly calls 911 after
his parents are killed, says this
dude shot ‘em’
A 5-year-old boy from Chattanooga, Tenn., made a
heartbreaking call to the police on Sunday night at
about 11 pm telling the dispatcher that “my daddy
and my mama got shot.”
The boy, who seemed too young to know his
address, calmly tells the dispatcher that “this dude
shot ’em” and asks her to “tell the police officers
to come.”
The police found George Dillard, 24, and Lakita
Hicks, 25, dead in the house, according to News
Channel 9. They say the child, who remains
unnamed, is unharmed and is currently with
extended family.
The boy remained on the phone with the dispatcher
for more than a minute, as she repeatedly
reassured him that help was on the way. When
asked by the dispatcher whether his parents were
talking, the child replied, “No. They dead.”
The boy’s father, Dillard, was a gang member, but
police have not said whether the shooting was
gang related and have not released information
about a suspect, reports the Times Free Press .
“We have dual concerns here,” said Chief Fred
Fletcher with the Chattanooga Police Department
reports New Channel 9, “finding the people who
committed this atrocious act of violence and
making sure we help the people who have survived
it and are affected by it.”
