WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- WWAY has audio of the 911 call after a violent robbery off of Old Eastwood Road Thursday night.
Wilmington Police said a black male came up to a woman as she was leaving a business then started attacking her with a hammer.
A witness heard what was happening and yelled at the man and then shot at him with his gun. After that, he called 9-1-1.
"So, I run back in and she has a gun here in the office that I used," the caller said.
"Did you shoot somebody or you just went and got the gun?" the 911 operator asked.
"No, I shot at him," the caller said.
The suspect got away. The victim is in the hospital recovering, but there's no word how she's doing.
