NAMPA — A late night 911 call on April 28, 2017, still makes Nampa Police dispatcher Becky Justus cry.

A woman called to report that her husband, whom she had separated from and claimed was abusing her, was outside and trying to get into the house. Everything seemed calm at first. The caller whispered. She told her children to be quiet. As the call progressed, she learned he had a gun. She answered Justus’s questions.
