911 Call From A Virginia Shooting Ends Up In New Mexico
In April 2013 a man in Stafford County (Virg.) dialed to report he had shot his wife after she cut him with a knife. However, the call was made on a VoIP line, and was routed to the Dona Ana County (NM) Sheriff’s comm center.
Police and EMS units were dispatched to an identical address in Las Cruces, but units quickly discovered it was the wrong city. The man then dialed 911 from a cellular phone and reached the Stafford County dispatcher, who sent law enforcement and EMS units.
The VoIP connection was still live during that cellular call.
