Police: Texas gunman called 911

A clearer recording of a Christmas day 911 call from a Texas apartment where seven people were found dead revealed a man believed to be the gunman whispering, "I am shooting people," police said.

Grapevine, Texas, authorities replayed the audio Wednesday using a different software system than previously used while preparing to release a recording of the call to media outlets, police Lt. Todd Deating said in a statement.

Police responding to a 911 call initially thought to be an "open line" went to the Grapevine apartment and found the bodies of seven family members, who apparently had just finished opening gifts at a Christmas gathering. The estranged husband of one woman - Azizolah Yazdanpanah, 56 - is thought to be the gunman, authorities said. He was dressed as Santa Claus.

    Thanks for your sharing. It really helped me to know the details. Someone asked me how to import steel flanges and elbows from China? Why not try Fame Rise Flange Co.,ltd? This is a professional manufacturer for pipe fittings. At the same time, I hope your posts will help more people all over the world.
