From Washington Post:
“He is like busting through the window,” the 26-year-old mother said in the call, which was obtained by The State, a newspaper in Columbia, S.C. “I need an officer here like, right now.”
The dispatcher then asked Reynoso if weapons were involved.

“He’s busting into my window right now,” Reynoso responded. She later told the dispatcher that the man, whom she described as her boyfriend, probably had access to weapons.
“He’s coming in the house right now,” she said, her voice sounding a bit more frantic. But as the dispatcher urged Reynoso to go into a room and shut the door, screams could be heard on the call.
“Ma’am?” the dispatcher said. “Hello?”
Reynoso on Sunday was one of four people who died in what authorities have called an apparent murder-suicide at a South Carolina home. She and two of her children, 4-year-old Elijah Chavez and 1-year-old Ezra Chavez, were fatally shot, according to The State.
Their bodies were discovered in a bedroom of a rental house on Old Barnwell Road, the newspaper reported. In the same bedroom, investigators also located the body of Jorge Luis Chavez, the man believed to be the gunman in the killings.
