Town of Tonawanda police have released a recording of the 911 call placed by the woman involved in a domestic confrontation Monday morning with Joseph Hollywood, who later died in the basement of his home.
The incident became public at about 9:15 a.m., when the woman at 163 Fries Road called 911.
“He's got a gun and he's going to kill me,” the woman says. The 911 operator also hears a man screaming in the background, and the woman claims that the man had started the house on fire.
