Palm Beach Gardens police on Wednesday morning released two 911 calls from the Corey Jones shooting last October.
“Drop that (expletive) gun now!” a man, apparently former Officer Nouman Raja, can be heard saying.
“I just shot one person,” on the I-95 southbound ramp by the DoubleTree Hotel, he tells a 911 dispatcher on the call from his cellphone. He can be heard telling the dispatcher he’s lost sight of the person he shot and that his radio is in his van.
Raja describes Jones as a black male wearing all black with dreadlocks and a silver gun in his hands.
When the dispatcher asks him if he’s okay, he replies, “Yeah man. I’m good. I’m good.”
The call from Raja was received by the dispatch center at 3:15:08 a.m., according to police. The second call, from women who reported hearing gunshots and seeing a man with a gun outside their hotel, was received at 3:15:56 a.m.
The woman on the phone says they saw a man walking backward toward PGA Boulevard holding a gun. They then describe him as a white male wearing a baseball cap, light-colored shirt and jeans and say they saw him getting into a light-colored SUV.
They said their view was partially obstructed by trees. Police were passing by.
