Aurora, Ill., Police Release 911 Audio From Mass Shooting

(TNS) - Aurora, Ill., police released audio of the 911 calls and emergency dispatch made during the Feb. 15 Aurora warehouse shooting at Henry Pratt Co. that left five employees dead.

Police communications detail the hour-long manhunt that injured six police officers, who were also identified by the department Monday.

The shooter — Gary Martin — began firing either during or shortly after a meeting where he was fired from the job he held for 15 years. He then retreated into the back of the 29,000-square-foot facility at 641 Archer Ave. and was eventually killed in a shootout with Aurora and Naperville police.

Five officers quickly responded to dispatch calls. One said “we are moving north through the warehouse. We haven’t heard anything yet,” when suddenly another officer screams that shots were fired outside in a bay area.
