911 Call Excerpt One

The 911 calls are shedding more light into exactly what happened following a deadly shooting Wednesday night at 660 Irish Ridge Road in Harrison Township.

56-year-old Donald McHenry was killed. Two women who lived in the home are being questioned in connection with the incident.

In one 911 call a 19-year-old woman who identifies the victim as her father is clearly distraught:

Caller: He tried to kill me. I don't think he's breathing, I don't know!

911: Ma'am, I can't understand what you're saying.

Caller: I don't think he's breathing!

911: Who's breathing?

Caller: I don't think he's breathing!

911: Who ma'am?

Caller: My Dad, I don't think my dad's breathing.

911: Okay how old is he?

Caller: He tried to kill me, he tried to kill me.

911: Is there anyone else there I can speak to?

Dispatchers then speak with a woman identified as the teen's mother who says she was asleep when the ordeal happened:

911: What is going on?

Caller: I don't know. I was in bed and I got up and I heard this big commotion and my daughter and my husband was like in a big thing out here in the yard. I don't know, and my daughter said he tried to kill her. Can you please send the police here? I don't know it's dark out and I can't see.

911: Is your husband breathing?

Caller: I don't know he's out in the yard. Please send the police.

911: Ma'am, they're already on the way, they're already on the way. I'm just trying to get some information.

Caller: Okay, Okay.

911: So you think she harmed him?

Caller: Umm... I don't know, she's got blood all over her. I don't know what's going on.

A neighbor also called in. He reported seeing a knife in Donald McHenry's hand as he was lying in the front yard, that has not been confirmed by authorities.
