Tonight here, the dispatcher and the homeowner who then fires. Here's ABC's Adrienne Bankert.

Reporter: In this newly released 911 call, the homeowner says he is hiding in his bedroom. Are you armed? Yeah, I have a gun. Reporter: The dispatcher, on the job just a few weeks, staying on the phone while sending police. Is that crashing I hear behind you? Is that them? Yeah, they broke the window out.
