Prosecutor's Office Releases 911 Calls from Old Bridge Pathmark Shooting

Employees can be heard calling to report the Aug. 31 shooting

A woman's panicked breathing can be heard as she tells a 911 operator that there is a gunman shooting at the Pathmark on Route 9 in Old Bridge. She asks repeatedly for police to hurry and explains to the operator that she and fellow coworkers are hiding in a backroom, uncertain of where or who the shooter is, or if anyone was shot.

"I don't want to die, please," she pleads to the operator. "He can get in. He has a gun, he has a gun."

Today, the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office released the audio recordings of the 911 calls made during , where 23-year-old Terence Tyler left his overnight shift early and returned with an AK-47, a hand gun, and multiple ammunition magazines. He opened fire in the store and killed Cristina LoBrutto, 18, and Bryan Breen, 24, both of Old Bridge, before shooting himself, according to Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce Kaplan.

The witnesses names are not available.

During another 911 call placed by two male employees who escaped out of a back door, Tyler is described as a newer employee who seemed angry and left early from his shift.

"He's gone 'postal.' I don't know," said the first employee, out of breath from running through the parking lot with his coworker.

"He's a young guy, he seemed very angry tonight. He was working and he just left," said the second employee when the first one passed him the phone. "We just thought he quit, he walked out. All of a sudden we heard shots."

So sad. I understand that we want to be informed but why should 911 calls be released.
