First batch of Pulse shooting calls released after court order

Woman called 911 for sister who was shot at Pulse

ORLANDO, Fla. – A woman calling for help whose sister was shot inside Pulse nightclub was one of the calls released by the city of Orlando on Monday.

The 911 recording is part of the first set of calls released from the Orlando shootings after an Orange County circuit judge ordered their release last week.

Orlando has previously released select calls from outside the club where where 49 people were killed and more than 50 people were injured on June 12.

Circuit Judge Margeret Schreiber on Thursday ordered transcripts of the remaining Pulse 911 calls to be released.

After listening to testimony from six Pulse victims' family members in a hearing, Schreiber said she would listen to all the calls before deciding whether to release them or not. In the same hearing, Schreiber ordered Orlando to release all the audio recordings involving the shooter, Omar Mateen.

This is the first batch of calls that the city has released after the court order.

Among the newly released calls are responses to the Orlando police officer who was injured during the shootout with Mateen and calls with negotiators trying to talk to the shooter.

Many of the 36 calls were from 911 dispatchers trying to call people back inside the club.

A woman called 911 at 2:38 a.m. for help. She said her sister was shot.

"Am I supposed to do something?" she asked dispatch.

"She looks like she's bleeding a lot. I don't know. I got blood all over me and everything," she said.

The caller is sobbing and the dispatcher instructs her to take deep breaths and apply pressure to her sister's wound.

At 5:06 a.m., a woman calls 911 asking about her friend and brother-in-law hiding in the nightclub bathroom.

“I just wanted to see if they are getting rescued. He’s bleeding a lot,” she said.

Minutes later, another 911 caller reports hearing an explosion as Orlando police attempt to breach the club and rescue victims.

Orlando police said they used controlled explosives to break open a wall near the bathroom.

At 5:18 a.m., a law enforcement agent calls dispatch for an update.

"I think they just said they got the bad guy," the dispatcher said. "I think they just said the bad buy was down."

On the day of the shooting, police confirmed the shooter was dead at 5:53 a.m.

News 6 and multiple news outlets have been fighting over the release of all the videos and 911 calls connected with the shootings.

News 6 staff is listening to the calls and will update this story with new information.
