A 911 call recounts the anxious moments overnight during a Plainfield home invasion that left a suspect dead.
It happened in the 200 block of Andrews Boulevard at around 9:30 pm in what neighbors describe as a quiet, safe neighborhood. The broken glass and bullet holes in the front door of the home tell a different story, though.
One resident made a frantic call to 911 as she hid inside the home.
"Hendricks County 911. Where is your emergency?"
"There is someone in my house who has a gun or a knife. He has a gun. He has a gun. Please don't shoot her."
"We have officers on the way."
"I am scared."
"You have every right to be scared."
"Are you hearing anything now?" (Shots fired)
"Oh my God. Oh my God. Did you call 911? Oh my God, Thank you, God, right now."
"My first response was to run out and rescue them. It's my family. I got in my closet and talked to the operator before police arrived," said Michelle Tejera, recalling those tense moments.
Tejera was staying with her parents Tuesday night when two men saying they sold lawn care services forced their way inside the family's Plainfield home. Tereja was in her bedroom when she heard the commotion at the front door. She grabbed her cell phone and called 911.
