A WNEM-TV investigation reveals that the lateness of a 9-1-1 emergency call center has led to a homicide. The report details how "16-year-old Gowan Younger called for help when his uncle attacked him with a knife." The 9-1-1 tapes, obtained by WNEM-TV, have proved that the emergency center staff were late helping and the teen shot his uncle when he attacked him again. The story has resulted in dismissing the charges against the teen.
