TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) -- "I need to talk to the police, somebody shot my son," said Mounah Jabara.
Tulsa police have released 911 calls from the Aug. 12 shooting of 37-year-old Khalid Jabara.
During a five-minute call, Mounah Jabara pleads with a dispatcher to send help, telling her his neighbor shot Khalid moments earlier just outside their south Tulsa home.
It was the third 911 call made by the Jabara family last Friday. Khalid had twice called in the hours before he was mortally wounded, first reporting a strange noise at his window, then saying a neighbor fired a gun inside his house.
In the final call, an emotional Mounah Jabara is unable to answer some of the dispatcher's questions. How old is the neighbor? What color shirt and pants is he wearing? What kind of gun does he have?
"He shot him! He shot him!" he said.
A second witness takes the phone and tells the dispatcher Khalid was shot in the abdomen.
"He's bleeding everywhere!" she said.
Khalid Jabara was transported to a local hospital but died a short time later.
Their neighbor, 61-year-old Stanley Vernon Majors, was found hiding behind a tree at a nearby library. He was arrested for first-degree murder.
The Jabara family says they've had numerous run-ins with Majors in recent years. A protective order was filed against Majors in 2013, which they say he violated.
Majors is already awaiting trial for the aggravated assault of Jabara's mother, whom the family says Majors hit with a car in September 2015.
In a statement released by the Jabara family, they say Majors has repeatedly uttered racial slurs and threats because of their Lebanese heritage and he should be charged with a hate crime.
"This suspect had a history of bigotry against our family. He repeatedly attacked our ethnicity and perceived religion, making racist comments. He often called us “dirty Arabs,” “filthy Lebanese,” “Aye-rabs,” and “Mooslems”—a fact highlighted by the Tulsa Police Department who also heard these comments from the suspect. The suspect’s bigotry was not isolated to us alone. He made xenophobic comments about many in our community -- “filthy Mexican” and the “n” word were all part of his hateful approach to anyone from a different background."
The murder has garnered national attention, spawning the hashtag #Justice4Khalid.
