This 911 call took place in a town in Indiana. The woman briefly dated Ryan Bergner. She declined further dates, but the man refused to leave her alone, stalking and harassing her. The woman filed six complaints against him. Then he made the last wrong decision of his life - he broke into her house.

Some have noted the shots are difficult to hear in this call, whether because of poor phone quality or other distortions. The sounds of the door being kicked also confuse matters. At 5:35, Bergner states "what are you trying to do, kill me?" which we know was after some of the shots were fired. If you listen closely at 5:44, it sounds like another shot can be heard, likely the third, because the wounded intruder was trying to strangle her.

If you are related to Ryan Bergner, my sympathies for your loss, but this audio coupled with police investigations tells the whole story.

If you are the woman in this audio, I have the highest regard for you and hope that you will not mind us using your story to illustrate the need for gun ownership.
