Police said it's not every day 911 dispatchers get a call from both the victim and the shooter, but that was the case when both called at same time from the place.

Just after 3 a.m. Saturday morning, dispatchers got a call of a shooting from a Guthrie home near 13th and Washington.

Dispatcher: "911 what's your emergency?"

Shooter: "I got a guy shot in the leg in my driveway."

Just seconds later, 911 got another call, and it was from the same house.

Dispatcher: "911 what's your emergency?"

Victim: "I f***ing need an ambulance, I've been shot."

Both the shooter and shooting victim were on separate 911 calls. It was at the shooter's home where he said he told the victim to leave repeatedly. But instead, he claimed the victim attacked him with a knife, so he shot him in the leg in self-defense.

Meanwhile, the victim moaned in pain and said he was jumped.

"It's pretty unusual, they were in pretty close proximity to one another too because on the victim's call, you can hear the shooter talking, and on the shooter's call, you can hear the victim talking," said Sgt. Jeremy Thorne of the Guthrie Police Dept.

Paramedics showed up to the home and took the victim to the hospital. It was long after that police took the shooter 29-year-old Justin Wallage to jail, arrested for assault and battery with a deadly weapon.

The victim had surgery on his leg and was listed in serious condition. Guthrie Police said they expect more charges to be filed against the shooter. Police said this was the fourth shooting in Logan County this month.
