LISTEN: GU Students Call 911 To Report Break In, Gun Theft
911 Tapes were released to KHQ Thursday afternoon of two Gonzaga students first reporting that a man tried to break into their apartment. Then they called again to report that Gonzaga security had just confiscated the guns they used to protect themselves
SPOKANE, Wash. -
Erik Fagan first called 911 to report a man at the front door of his apartment and Fagan says the man made some serious threats.
In the 911 tapes obtained by KHQ Thursday afternoon, Fagan tells the dispatcher, "he said you don't want to do this right now i just got out of jail and he showed an ankle bracelet."
The converstation with the 9-1-1 operator goes back and forth for a few minutes giving a description of black man wearing a dark jacket.
"He was asking for money and I said I felt comfortable giving him food or some other thing," Fagan told the dispatcher.
The man who went to their door was later identified as John Taylor, a six-time felon.
Police caught up to him and arrested him shortly after the call.
But then at 2am later that night, another 911 call was made. This one was very different.
Fagan called to report a stolen weapon. The dispatcher asked how the weapon was stolen and Fagan replied, "Uh strong arm from SP ... Er from Gonzaga Security."
Campus security had returned and confiscated Dan Mcintosh's pistol and Eric Fagan's shotgun, which he uses for hunting and sport shooting.
Fagan's roommate, Daniel McIntoshan, told dispatch, "An officer tonight responded on a call where a weapon was used as a deterrent of theft and they uh instructed me to call this number if Gonzaga Security came against me for my weapons and they did. They just confiscated them."
The two students were put on probation by Gonzaga for having guns in their apartment, which is on Gonzaga property. Their guns have since been returned to them. They are appealing their probation.
