The 911 call from a Friday morning shooting, stabbing and high-speed chase was released Monday.
The call came in at around 10:41 a.m. after an altercation at 118 Lenoir Road led to a woman being stabbed, a man being shot and another man being shot and stabbed, according to a previous News Herald article.
Kristen Jewel Ellis, 25, of 7860 Deerfarm Road, Morganton, was the woman stabbed. She was released from the hospital Sunday. Ezra Patton, 22, of 5543 White Oaks Drive in Morganton, and Richard Hidalgo, 25, of 118 Lenoir Road, were the men shot. Patton has been released from the hospital, and Hidalgo was listed as stable Monday afternoon, according to Maj. Ryan Lander with the Morganton Department of Public Safety.
There were two young children inside the residence when the shooting occurred, but they were picked up by a relative.
In the 911 call, dispatchers can be heard trying to get information from the caller, who said he was shot at multiple times.
“I just got robbed and shot,” the caller told dispatch.
When dispatchers asked for more information, a child could be heard crying in the background.
“Somebody just came in and pulled a gun on me and I believe I’m hit,” the caller said.
The dispatcher asked if the man had been shot, and he confirmed he had, but he wasn’t sure where.
“I don’t know [where I was shot], they kept shooting me with a little gun, like a little tiny gun, and they took the shotgun” the caller said.
The caller went on to ask EMS to hurry.
“My son is crying … get here quick, I feel like I’m going to pass out,” the caller said.
The call ends with the dispatcher asking the caller if emergency responders had arrived.
Sunday, police charged Ellis with felony fleeing to elude arrest with a motor vehicle, according to court documents. She also was charged with reckless driving to endanger and failure to stop for a steady red light.
According to a previous News Herald article, Ellis was driving a car that led police on a high-speed chase, eventually coming to a stop on Amherst Road. The passenger in the car was a man with stab wounds and a gunshot wound, the article said.
No other charges have been pressed, but the incident still is under investigation, Lander said.
Friday’s violent altercation wasn’t the first time police have visited Hidalgo’s residence.
In March, police were called to the address for a shots fired call. Hidalgo was at the home, as well as a woman and juvenile, when they heard a loud noise they thought was a firearm, according to a previous News Herald article.
During that call, five bullet holes were found at the home, the article said.
Just three months before that incident, Hidalgo was charged with discharging a firearm into an occupied property on Rockyford Street. According to another News Herald article, police said Hidalgo was shooting at the car his ex-girlfriend was driving, which had two children inside, but hit another man’s house instead.
When Hidalgo was arrested on those charges, he and the gun used were found inside 118 Lenoir Road, the article said.
Patton also has a criminal history. In January, he received multiple drug charges, including possession of a schedule I controlled substance with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver, according to a previous News Herald article.
