Dispatcher: At the Von Maur?
J.L.: Yes.
D: We do have police en route. Do you have any suspect information?
J.L.: He’s a white gentleman. Um, I didn’t really see him. He had a large gun. We have people injured, we have people who have been shot.
D: We do have police on the way out there, do you know how many people?
J.L.: I would say, as far as I can see, about four or five people.
D: OK, hold on, we are on the way, I’m going to transfer you up to rescue to see if they need that information.
J.L.: OK (names one of the homicide victims), hold on, the ambulance is coming.
Transfer to new dispatcher:
J.L.: Yes, my name is Jodi. I’m with Von Maur. I have people who were down and people who have been shot.
D: In what part of the store?
J.L.: I am on the third floor, that’s where most of the people who have been shot are at.
D: How many people do you have there?
J.L: As far as I can tell, I have two to roughly four that I have seen.
D: The person that did the shooting, where are they at? Do you have any idea?
J.L.: No, I have no idea. As far as I can tell, I remember quickly, he was a white gentleman, about 5-foot-8 inches, had kind of a mustache. Large gun.
D: How old is he?
J.L: I really saw him from a far distance. He was probably around mid-20s. D: Do you have any idea what type of gun it was?
J.L.: It was large.
D: Was it like a pistol-type gun?
J.L: It was big. It wasn’t a rifle but it looked like an automatic type of a gun. D: Do you have the injured parties with you there?
J.L.: I have one in view.
D: OK. I want you to stay down and out of sight, OK?
J.L: OK.
D: Do you have any other information for me?
J.L: I can’t think of anything. I’m sorry, I just — when I heard the gunshot, I got down as soon as possible because I have kids (beginning to cry).
J.L.: Are they here yet?
D: I’m sure the police are in the building, but you know, they’ve got to take their time too, getting up there.
J.L.: Right, right. I just talked to (inaudible) in the locker room, and she’s got a lot of blood on the floor. Hello?
D: I’m still here
J.L.: Alarms have gone off.
J.L.: Can I transfer you to a phone where I can lock myself in to an office?
D: If that’s possible, that’s great.
J.L.: OK, let me transfer you there (transfer music plays). OK, I’m in a secure office, and nobody can get in here unless they have a key.
D: OK, good. Are you in there by yourself?
J.L.: I am, yeah, it’s our security office.
J.L.: Let me look (at the security cameras).
D: The first floor was secured, so they (police) should be on the second floor by now.
J.L.: OK. I can see . . . (inaudible) people were injured.
D: Pardon?
J.L.: When he came in, he just came over to customer service and told them to open the vault.
D: He told them to open the vault when he went over to customer service?
J.L: Yeah. “Open the vault, open the vault.”
D: So this was possibly some type of robbery then that went bad?
J.L.: Correct. Correct.
D: Hold on just a second, Jodi.
J.L.: (gasp) Oh my gosh! It looks like the gun is laying over by customer service. There is an officer here now, I wonder if he . . .
D: Customer service on the third level?
J.L.: Correct, it looks like he might have killed himself (beginning to cry).
D: Do you see him laying by a . . . by a gun?
J.L.: I see him lying there by the gun (crying intensifies).
D: So you see a guy on camera laying by the gun on the floor. Is that correct?
J.L.: Correct, there is an officer there.
D: Does it look like that’s the guy on the camera, is that the guy who was doing the shooting? Can you tell by the clothing?
J.L.: Yeah, it could have been. It’s about the age. I’d have to see his face to be able to tell because of his mustache, it was like he had a mustache.
J.L.: (muffled sound) I don’t want to look anymore. I’m not looking.
