On Friday, frightening 911 audio was obtained by multiple outlets that showed the intense moments when Eagles defensive lineman Fletcher Cox stated someone tried to break into his home in Gloucester County.
In that call, Cox could be heard telling dispatchers he is armed with a shotgun and is willing to shoot whoever was trying to break in.
“I got somebody trying to break into my house and I’m about to blow his brains out right now.”
911 dispatcher: “Any idea who it is?”
Fletcher: Cox: “I don’t. He’s busted. He’s busting my door up, part of my door, I have a shotgun. He come in the house I’m gonna blow his brains out.”
911 dispatcher: “What’s your name sir?”
Fletcher Cox: “Fletcher Cox. Do you hear this? Do you hear it? I swear to you, he got about 30 seconds.”
You can then hear glass shattering.
911 dispatcher: “Mr. Cox can you get somewhere where you’re, you’re secure?”
Fletcher Cox: “I am. I am secure, but I have my shotgun and I swear to God he’s busting every window out of my house right now.”
You can then hear more glass shattering.
911 dispatcher: “Is there any way you can lock yourself in a room?”
Fletcher Cox: “I’m gonna stand in my door, if he comes in my house, I mean, I’m telling you right now my gun is off safety and I’m gonna blow his brains out.”
Investigators later stated Cox was dating the ex-girlfriend of the suspect and she was inside the home at the time. He reportedly came to Cox’s house, threw rocks through the window of his girl’s car, tried desperately to force his way into the home by throwing rocks at the front door & pulling at the knob.
According to police, suspect was armed with a baseball bat and also attempted to enter the garage several times. He would eventually leave, but later caught and arrested.
