captured of the scene earlier. police got calls of gunshots inside the home nestled in the corner of a quiet suburban street. metro says what happened was a 19 year old was fighting with either his father or his stepfather - the exact relationship is still unclear - and the teen stabbed the man 4 times. then the man shot and killed the boy. that man is at umc trauma in stable condition recovering from his stab wounds. metro detectives are there to speak to him about what happened and criminal charges could be filed. also metro says while this was going on there were six or seven other family members in the house who will be interviewed about all this. one neighbor told me he's seen police called to that house more than once before. another neighbor gave an interesting perspective too - saying in a weird way he's glad it was domestic and not a home invasion or something that puts others in the community at risk. reporting live david schuman 13

11:10 pm
and their calls kept getting put on hold. 6:04 darcy: when you first called and you got that recorded voice, clearly you're in a panic. what are you thinking when you hear that? debbie: to be gonna answer. (butt to 6:32) when they didn't and i had to go get another phone, i thought what am i gonna do?! why aren't they answering?! 54:17 steve: when you're in that situation that you desperately need support from the 9- 1-1 system that needs to be handled immediately, and that doesn't mean getting put on hold, waiting for 60 seconds or two minutes or three minutes for that to happen. just, it's not acceptable. it has to be improved. in the 15-minute window of time surrounding debbie's emergency, metro's 9-1-1 radio systems director says there were only 6 call-takers handling 62 calls. but, county commission chairman steve sisolak says that's no excuse. 50:40 steve: there's no justification for it. there were--my understanding--some internal mistakes that were made along the way.

lyndsay: all the stuff we had in that room was pretty much destroyed. but the worst was still to come. check this out. in october, lyndsay shot this home video. lyndsay (home video): tremendous amount of water. here's my house. and that's exactly where the water ended up. these pictures show the kitchen and bedrooms, all under water. once the rooms were cleared out, aaron started removing the carpet. but when he reached the subfloor, they discovered how much worse it really was. lyndsay (crying): what do you do with this? the rain had collected inside this crater. it looks like the master bedroom was a late add-on to the house, because a conrete slab was never put down. and that eventually allowed the water to come up through the floor. lyndsay (crying): we can't live here until it's fixed. and we can't fix it until the drainage is fixed. the city hasn't fixed the drainage in 50 years.
