Emergency radio dispatches among United States police officials have brought to light the tense situation and sequence of events unfolding at a Gurdwara in Wisconsin, where a gunman had opened fire and killed six worshippers.
The radio traffic was captured at a website called Radio Reference, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
The first report on the scanner at 10.27 am was of "an altercation."
"There is a lot of noise and I am unable to get much info," the dispatcher says.
A minute later, the dispatcher adds, "A bald man with glasses may have shot someone. I am going to dispatch fire department."
An officer comes on the air at 10.30 am, "Give me an ambulance," he says.
A few minutes later, an officer says there is a man with a gun in a white T-shirt. Gunshots can be heard in the background.
An officer tells the dispatcher they need mutual aid from Franklin police.
A female officer follows up, saying she is approaching the subject who is not moving.
Another officer quickly yells, "Subject down! Subject down! We have one officer shot."
