IONIA, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - For the first time, we're hearing the 911 calls after police say two men killed each other during a road-rage fueled shooting at a car wash.
Police say it happened just before 7:00 Wednesday night at the Wonder Wand Car Wash on South Steele Street in Iona.
Within moments of the shots being fired multiple calls came in to Ionia County 911.
One of those callers is the wife of one of the men who was shot and killed. We hear her very emotional as she tries to tell the operator what happened.
On the tape the woman identifies herself as Teri Pullum, the wife of one of the men.
She's, understandably, very upset and can be hard to understand at times. You can hear her talking to a bystander at times, telling them it was road rage.
Ionia police detectives have still not said what started an apparent road rage confrontation that led to a shootout, ending with two men dead.
Police say 43-year-old James Pullum and 56-year-old Robert Taylor, both from Ionia, pulled into the parking lot, got out of their cars and started shooting.
One of Pullum's high school classmates tells Newschannel 3 Pullum's wife and mother were in the car at the time.
People who knew both men can't believe either would do something like this.
At this point police have not released how or if the two men knew each other.
