911 call in triple shooting includes 2 gun shots

By news admin

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A jury in Memphis has heard a chaotic emergency call placed during a triple shooting that included a woman begging her boyfriend not to shoot her parents.

The 911 call was played Tuesday for jurors during the first day of Sedrick Clayton's trial. The 31-year-old Clayton faces the death penalty if convicted on first-degree murder charges in the shooting deaths of his girlfriend Pashea Fisher and her parents on Jan. 19, 2012.

Authorities say Clayton got into an argument with Fisher before shooting her parents in their bedroom, then shooting her. Jurors could hear screaming and the sound of two gunshots during the emergency call.

Clayton's written offer to plead guilty to all three murder charges and serve life in prison has been rejected by prosecutors.
