A burglar suspect — who was caught in the act — called 911 as he was being held at gunpoint by the homeowner of a Springtown residence.
The homeowner also called 911 to report the crime.
The suspect left the house and proceeded to get inside his pickup truck, where the homeowner confronted him — with a gun.
The homeowner told the man to drop his keys, which he did. The man, sitting in the truck, called 911. He repeatedly told the operator, "He’s going to shoot me."
"Why have they threatened to shoot you?" the operator asked.
"Because I’m on his property," he said.
"Were you trying to break into his house?"
"What were you doing?"
"I was ... I was walking."
"Do you live out there?"
"OK, I’m going to stay on the phone with you until we get a deputy there. He’s not that far off, OK?"
"Are you sure?"
"Yes. I’m sure. Just don’t move. Tell the gentleman you’re on the phone with 911 and I know what’s going on and we have a deputy coming. OK?"
"He’s going to shoot me."
"No, he’s not going to shoot you. Just don’t move. Just don’t move."
"It’s a joke, right?"
"It’s a joke? Is that what you’re saying?"
"It’s gotta be, right?"
"No, it’s not a joke. It’s very serious and you need to sit right there until a deputy gets there. You just sit right there. You’re fine."
