911, radio calls released from KDH stabbing
The recordings include a call by a Kill Devil Hills police officer for mutual assistance, a 911 call made by someone in a vehicle carrying the stabbing victim, and radio traffic between Dare Central and an EMS crew in Kill Devil Hills confronted by multiple individuals.
The first recording is the mutual aid call from an unidentified police officer responding to a fight in the vicinity of The Pit and Fuji restaurants.
The second recording is the 9-1-1 call, which is offered unedited, and language can be heard in the clip that some may find offensive. Listener discretion is advised.
The caller appears to be confused as to their location, describing the road as “Manteo Highway,” the water tower adjacent to the Kill Devil Hills fire station on Croatan Highway as the “Devil Hills Tower,” and the station as the “Manteo Fire Station.”
The caller then states they see an ambulance. In their haste to help the victim, occupants of the vehicle approached the ambulance and began banging on the windows to gain admission.
The dispatcher attempts to calm the caller, who then tries to relay information to the others who continue to try to get the ambulance crew to open their doors.
The caller repeatedly tells the dispatcher the stabbing victim is “blanking out” and losing blood.
The tape ends when a supervisor appears on scene and the victim is allowed in the ambulance.
The final recording is on-air traffic between the ambulance and Dare Central.
The first portion of the recording is a call for mutual assistance to all law enforcement units to stage at the Fuji restaurant for a fight in progress.
There is also an advisement of “shots being fired” at the scene, but there has not been any corroboration by any agency of that report.
In this exchange, the ambulance notes they have come upon a vehicle blocking their path near Mako Mike’s restaurant, south of the Dare EMS station.
Multiple occupants of the vehicle are beating on the ambulance, and the crew says they are reluctant to open their doors.
The EMS crew requests law enforcement to come to their aid, but they are told all officers are handling a “200 person fight” nearby and no officers are available.
The tape ends at the same time as the 911 call concludes, when an EMS supervisor arrives on the scene and informs Dare Central the victim is being transported to Outer Banks Hospital.
The unidentified man was later transferred to Norfolk Sentara General Hospital for treatment. Police say he has not cooperated with their investigation.
Kill Devil Hills police chief Gary Britt said arrests were pending in the case, and requested the public provide any additional information they may have regarding the stabbing.
