911 call: 'My dad and my mom are dead'
Posted December 18, 2014
Raleigh, N.C. — Three children locked themselves in a room in their Wake County home Wednesday afternoon as their parents argued and then heard the gunshots that ended the lives of their mother and father, according to a 911 call released Thursday.
Deputies responding to the call found Martha Yses Campusano Cisneros, 32, dead inside the home at 9937 Huntwyck Drive, off Ten Ten Road south of Garner. Emilo Rodriguez-Rizo, 47, was suffering from a gunshot wound and died en route to WakeMed.
An 11-year-old boy called 911 from his mother's phone while he and his siblings, ages 3 and 4, hid inside the house.
"My dad and my mom are dead," the boy told the dispatcher. "My mom is on the couch and she’s dead. I don’t know where my dad is. I think he’s outside the house."
The boy said he heard "something very loud," followed by footsteps, which is why he thought his father had gone outside.
"I know she’s dead because I heard two gunshots, and the last words she said were, 'Call the police,'” he told the dispatcher.
He said he called his aunt before dialing 911 – she also called authorities to report the shooting – and was trying to give deputies a description of his father when another shot rang out.
"Oh no. I heard a gunshot," he said, telling the dispatcher the single shot came from inside the house.
After that, he said, all he could hear was "voices from the television" until deputies arrived.
The three children are with relatives.
