Police responded to a call for help early Saturday morning. One man was found dead from a gunshot wound.
A 911 call came from a man who was speaking Spanish on Saturday, 12:39 am. He hung up before a Spanish-speaking call taker could get on the line, or an address could be obtained. But the call taker could hear that he was in distress.
The person who was calling from the cell phone was at the 400 block of Southeast 15th Avenue. When emergency personnel went to that area, they found a house in the 1400 block of South Pierce Street. EMTs and police officers found the back door open when they came. They went inside and found a man in a back room who died from a gunshot wound.
