PostSubject: Denver Dispatch Tapes 1-8, Condensed Version   Sat Jan 14, 2017 12:13 pm


Tape 1 Side A

Dispatch: I just picked it up on CLEER. Jefferson County is getting shots fired at officers, 2 parties in the school. Columbine High School 6201 South Pierce, 2 males in trench coats have shotguns and possible grenades.

Dispatch: 484, Ok I’m trying to get Command Post (CP) for you. I’m trying to get information from Jefferson County. They are sort of busy possible CP on Leaway. I’m trying to get that location.

Leawood Place is what we were told. This is 490. The suspect is in the cafeteria with approximately 17 students. The clerk at District 4 has one of the students on the phone here for the information.

Dispatch: Ok keep us updated sir. I have 490 @ 11:40.

435: 410, yeah apparently we got 2 shooters in one of the buildings and they probably can use more assistance here with traffic and getting these kids evacuated.

Ok we got several cars coming.

400: Where’s the CP?

C4: Off Leawood Way, I'll give you better instructions after we get there and find it.

Ask him how many cars we got on it.

Dispatch: As many as we can sir.

490: Radio one suspect has a shotgun. Apparently, according to one of the kids the clerk is talking to, and some type of radio, he can hear radio traffic. Apparently Jeffco is not in the building yet.

Yeah 35 there just now getting assembled around here with their Swat unit and stuff, a lot of confusion.

(All other radio traffic switched to other channels)

Adam 9: In route could you also start some of our DE ambulances please.

Dispatch: They have been sent sir.

560: 490 roger, can you use help out there?

You know, I’m not sure Steve, we will have to wait until somebody gets on scene, trying to relay the information our clerk gets.

424: On 5 responding to Columbine.

Dispatch: 424 ok, all officers on dispatch 5 for 6201 the CP is at Leawood and Pierce. There are any number of general ambulances and other ambulances standing by.

400: I’m going to be at Leawood and Pierce in 90 seconds. Is there a commanding officer?

400: 434, all Denver cars, when you get into position, report to 430 your location so we can log where ever you are at and send backup when we get them.

435: I’ll be at Pierce and Fair.

498: I’m at Clement Park entrance here I have it blocked off just south of the CP. I need somebody at the Park entrance on the north side. I’ve got traffic coming through.

Dispatch: Sir, are you getting close?

Metro 9: Yeah were approaching the inner perimeter at this door where they are calling for cover for rescue.

400: Where’s Ben at?

430: He's over on the southwest side with me. We’re trying to get students out of the line of fire right now.

412: Both parties have bullet proof vests on.

Dispatch: Shots on the west side 11:57.

Tac29: Just for information, on southwest side party with a gun just came to the door, fired 3 rounds.

Dispatch: Tac15 you were clear. Could it have been a male in a trench coat?

412: Both parties have bullet proof vests on, 1 armed with a shotgun, 1 armed with assault rifle.

Dispatch: Verifying they have vests on?

Confirmed.

Dispatch: All officers, parties have body armor, there are shots fired again on west side 11:58.

Suspect [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], first name is Eric, last name Harris. Party [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], first name Dylan, Dylan is tall w/m blonde headed.

430: Can you confirm there are some ambulances coming up here? We got 4 or 5 gunshot victims up here.

What’s your location again?

Were at the southwest corner of the school, here we’ve got probably a dozen officers and probably 30 students.

(location is given)

Ambulance 4 is there any chance of them getting the victims to us at roughly Pierce and Bowles?

430: were doing exactly that right now, we’re loading up most of the gunshot victims in our police cars and heading west on the greenbelt pathway.

Ok why don’t you guys meet us about a quarter mile on Pierce and Bowles?

498: We have Channel 7 flying overhead us up there. Listen and let us know if they see them come out or anything.

Dispatch: Ok.

400: 430, you have that section secure? Bill? You got that section secure so they can come in and get the victims?

430: I think we can see pretty much most of the southwest side. We’re on the corner so we can view to the north and to the east from where we are but I still think we need people in the northwest corner and to the north of the school.

400: We will send the ambulances to you with their command and they’re going to coordinate with you and get those people out. How many down?

430: I’d say at least 5, were still trying to get some people out.

400: Southwest corner of the building, meet them there and set that up and get the injured out.

Patrol 1: Command 400, would it be worth it to establish a staging area, bring in more Denver cars to hold the reserve to put them where you need them.

400: I got a ton now right here at Leawood and whatever this street is.

Patrol 1: Ok do you want more Denver cars out there?

Command 400: Not yet Mike. Leawood and Pierce is where we’re at and were still trying to finish establishing our perimeter.

Patrol 1: Ok is that going to be the CP and do you want the mobile CP out there?

C 400: yeah, ask somebody to bring it out. That might not be a bad idea. This is right now where the CP is.

484: I got 1 party in my car shot, where are we taking them?

(Depew 483?) Take them to Caley and Yukon, there are ambulances going there.

Dispatch: 483, Channel 4 verifying that you are ok?

483: Ok.

Dispatch: 484, where did he tell you where to go with the victim? Ambulances are meeting at the CP at Leawood and Pierce.

484: Call Channel 4, have them go up to Caley and Yukon, it’s where the ambulances are going.

Could you get a hold of the ambulance, the red ambulance responding here, they’re driving into a very bad spot.
