911 calls, videos depicting the chaos and panic of the deadly rampage in Farmington, NM

Hundreds of witnesses called 911 earlier this month as gunfire and bloodied victims filled the streets of Farmington, New Mexico in another senseless shooting.

Videos of the incident show police arriving at the scene with guns drawn, rushing towards the shooter.

As more shots are fired, an officer shouts, “Subject down! Cease fire, cease fire! Another officer, injured in the leg, was helped into a patrol car and taken to a nearby hospital.

Within minutes, police raced to find a possible second shooter and scoured the neighborhood to see how far the casualties and gunshots had spread.

On Friday, hours of body cameras and dash cams were released, along with a large amount of recordings of 911 dispatches.

The evidence gives a vivid depiction of the panic that set in during the May 15 attack that left a northwest New Mexico community in mourning.

Three women were killed and six others injured in the rampage. The lone 18-year-old shooter was killed by responding officers.

Some 911 calls came from those finding bullet holes and shattered windshields. In one case, shards of glass hit a woman who was sitting in her car.

“A lady is in the car. And it looks like there was a bullet that went through the windshield and it’s bleeding a lot,” a caller can be heard saying.

“We heard screaming and crying,” said another woman, calling from inside her house.

Another call, titled ‘Mother of Suspect’, shows an anxious woman explaining that her son was suffering from depression and wondering if he had been involved.

“I’m just worried. I have a son who has been very, very depressed and I’m driving and was wondering if you could give me some information,” the woman said.

“You know, he might be fine. He was just very depressed and I was really worried,” she adds.

The shooter, 18-year-old Beau Wilson, fired more than 190 rounds in the attack, during which he was armed with at least three firearms, including an AR-15. He fired the majority of the shots from his father’s house.

Victims of the shooting included Farmington residents Gwendolyn Dean Schofield, 97, her 73-year-old daughter, Melody Ivie, and Shirley Voita, 79, authorities said.
