DeMorning Links: 5:12

Five minutes, 12 seconds. That’s what elapsed between when, early on the morning of Oct. 2, 2010, a 911 caller gave the location where he needed police to be — the Clay Terrace homes — and when a salvo of gunshots, captured on the call, struck down Angelo Jones, 31. But in that time, the 911 dispatcher did not send police to Clay Terrace, or anywhere else. Homicide Watch reveals how she sought in vain a precise street address from the caller, who knew he was at “5339,” but never put that number together with Clay Terrace NE — a short, U-shaped street that is well known to police. “Well, if you could come, Clay Terrace ...,” the caller implores. Replies the operator, “Sir, I’m not coming.” One minute, 50 seconds later — bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang.
