The 911 tapes have been released after the tragic shooting death of 3-year-old Acen King in Little Rock, Arkansas, this weekend. They reveal the horrific cries from a grandmother desperately hoping to save his young life.
A woman outside the JC Penny called 911 on behalf of the grandmother. Still, her screams can be heard echoing through the parking lot, even on the phone.
“My baby’s been shot!” she can be heard. “Oh my God!”
The dispatcher asks for information about where the shooting took place and if there was a gunman.
The woman can be heard asking for details and the grandmother explains she was at the stop sign when a man “blew his horn” and she honked back. She thought he shot his gun into the air — but he instead fired the weapon into the family’s car.
King was shot in the neck and later died at the hospital. A manhunt is still underway and police have announced a $40,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest and conviction of the suspect.
King is the second child shot in Little Rock in the last month.
