911 tapes detail shooting of officers

Posted: Monday, January 11, 2010

TACOMA, Wash. - Newly released 911 tapes reveal the horrifying minutes after a shootout in Washington state that killed a Pierce County sheriff's officer and the gunman, and wounded another deputy.

In the tapes of the Dec. 21 shootout, a deputy later determined to be sheriff's Sgt. Nick Hausner shouts into his radio, "I have been shot," setting off a frantic search for who made the call. The tapes were released Friday.

Authorities say 35-year-old David Crable ambushed the deputies who had responded to a domestic disturbance call. Crable was shot and killed at the home, while Deputy Kent Mundell died a week later. Hausner is recovering from his injuries.

The tapes underscore the bravery of Crable's 16-year-old daughter, who tried to wrestle away her father's gun, aided the wounded Hausner and ran to a neighboring home for help.
