Scanner audio highlights concerning 10 minute delay dispatching a medical transport unit to Saturday night domestic shooting that left 40-year-old Deyvonndra Jones dead.
Bellevue Police and Bellevue Fire were dispatched to reports of a shooting inside a residence at 10:41 p.m. Bellevue Engine 1 arrived shortly after and reported being at patient and began to render aid at 10:45 p.m.
Five minutes later Sarpy County Dispatch advises Bellevue Battalion 1 that no medical transport unit has been dispatched to the call. All available Bellevue medical transport units are already on other calls for service throughout the city. Bellevue Battalion 1 requests Mutual Aid from Papillion Fire Department for a medical transport unit. Papillion Medic 3 is dispatched immediately.
Twenty-two minutes after the initial 911 call for help Papillon Medic 3 arrives on scene at 11:02 p.m.
Deyvonndra Jones was transported to the Nebraska Medical Center where she later succumbed to her injuries.
Police arrested 43-year-old Lovell Jones Jr. for 2nd degree murder, use of a weapon to commit a felony, and 1st degree domestic assault.
