911 calls released from Harford County office shooting


Several weeks after five people shot, three of whom were killed, officials have released 911 calls for help.

It began the morning of Oct. 18 when police say Radee Prince opened fire at a granite business in Edgewood, Md.

Caller: “Someone just ran down the road and say someone was shot!”

There was some confusion at first among callers. One of the first callers, a woman inside the Advanced Granite Solutions building told 911 operators to send a lot ambulances because she thought gas was making people pass out.

Operator: “Why did they pass out?”
Caller: "We don't know why they passed out."
Operator: "Ok"
Caller: "Um, yes so send lots of ambulances. because we have...How many people?  Ten?"

It was an awful morning. When police say Radee Prince opened fire. Harford County Department of Emergency services released 911 calls from people asking for help.

Operator: “This is 911, hello.”

Caller: “I'm at work and someone just came in shooting.”

Another caller is standing behind a trash dumpster and sees bodies on the ground. The 911 operator urges him and others to wait for police before checking on the victims.

Operator: "Can you see anything from where you are?"
Caller: "A bunch of guys are going inside to check on him now."
Operator: "They are going in but they don't know if the shooter is in there? Tell them to stay safely outside. We have the police in route. I don't want anyone to go into that building until we know it is safe to do so."

Meanwhile, on Thursday, outside the Advanced Granite Solutions building, there were several signs of the tragedy that occurred there.  At one area a small memorial and on a nearby window two poster boards honoring the victims.
