More 911 recordings released in Target shooting

Posted June 4, 2010

— Apex police released additional recordings Friday of 911 calls from a fatal shooting at a Super Target earlier this week.

"Three shots fired, so far. You better get out quick," a caller says in one of the calls. "We've all ran out of the store. Let's go! Hurry up, please!"

Police said Mervin Carroll Mims, 67, shot and killed his former girlfriend, Guadalupe F. Rosas, 59, of Apex, before killing himself in the store Sunday morning.

Rosas was a cashier at the store, at 1201 Beaver Creek Commons Drive.

Apex police Capt. Ann Stephens said the two ended their relationship in 2005 but had stayed in contact since then. They have not commented on a motive for the shooting.

Earlier this week, police released several other 911 recordings in the case.

    Are they ever going to show photos of the man and woman? I've never seen many murder cases where they didn't at least show the murderer.

    This is precisely why I have a concealed handgun permit. You never know when some nut is going to go on a rampage, and the police are only minutes away. The concealed gun is like an insurance policy. I hope I never need it but I am covered if I do. I do not want to be a sitting duck in a situation like this.
