Woman's Plea For Help Ignored, Takes A Fatal Turn

A Dayton, Ohio homeowner had been a repeat target of crime when she felt something was going to happen to her again. So, she called 911 and told the dispatcher to say that someone was breaking in. The caller told her that the man was banging at her door. The dispatcher did nothing more than tell her to "keep an eye out" and an officer was on the way. The dispatcher also said to call back if she sees anything else. She waited for the cops, but an hour later, the criminal had crept in through an upstairs window. During that time, she armed herself since it seemed that the dispatcher didn't take her call seriously.

The 22-year-old intruder, identified as DeBrandon Dickerson, had come from Detroit to break into her home. When she heard him enter the home, Dickerson allegedly came face-to-face with the homeowner who shot him in the chest. He ran out of the house and down the street, collapsing a block away. The woman called police again. She reported that the man who the dispatcher didn't think was a threat had been shot. After her call, a family member of the intruder called the dispatcher to ask for medical assistance. Dickerson was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
