911 Call Released In Fatal Onslow Shooting

WITN has obtained the 911 call made before an Onslow County Sheriff's Deputy shot and killed a man Wednesday.

Deputies arrived at the home of John Traub on Jeffrey road Wednesday morning.

Neighbors say they noticed Traub waving a gun in front of the window when deputies arrived.

A person who identified herself as a friend of Traub's called 911. "He told us and his sponsor that he's been thinking about drinking and just shooting himself. He called me said that he just wanted to see if I'd answer the telephone. He just kept saying I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, and I said what's going on, and he said, he started crying worse and I could barely understand him, and he said just please try to help my daughter, if you can, and then he said bye and he hung up."

The dispatcher responded by saying she was going to try to get Traub on the phone.
