The Wright County attorney’s office on Wednesday released two 911 transcripts related to the May 9 shooting deaths of Elk River police officer Todd Besser, 49, and his 27-year-old son, Blake Besser, in the latter’s St. Michael home.
Another Besser son, Christopher, 21, has been charged with two counts of intentional second-degree murder. County Attorney Tom Kelly said he will seek first-degree murder charges from a grand jury.
One of the transcripts records in graphic terms the 911 call from Blake Besser, during which he dies. The other is Christopher Besser’s call from a convenience store turning himself in.
Here is the transcript of Christopher Besser's 911 call.
