“I got a ride from someone…because they were trying to kill me at 167,” she said.

She was speaking of room 167 of the Plaza Inn motel. She made the call from a nearby convenience store where police found her.

The 19-year-old was convinced someone was following her. She was put in the back of a police car and then officers showed up at the hotel.

The young woman called 911 again from the back of the police cruiser.

“They're trying to shoot me. They're looking for me,” she said. “Please hurry, please hurry, please hurry.”

By this time, officers had been in a shootout at the hotel. The caller was still in the backseat of a police car and still convinced someone was after her and gave the dispatcher a description.

“Ok. He's a tall, white male. Blonde hair. Right?” The dispatcher asked.

Police were swarming the area and looking for the suspect, Shane Rhea.

The young woman made a third call to 911.

“Oh, my god. He's walking toward those cop cars. Please!” She exclaimed.

The caller was on the verge of a panic attack as the dispatcher worked to get her calm enough to understand what she was saying.

“You're going to hyperventilate,” the dispatcher said. “I really need you to calm down.”

The woman began banging on the window of the police car.

“I need to get out of this car, please.” she said.

Shane Rhea was charged with several crimes including first-degree murder, shooting with intent to kill and kidnapping.
