The Norman Police Department released body cam footage and 911 calls from the "active shooter" situation at Bergey Windpower.

Police released the call and video to the media on Thursday. The shooting happened Wednesday afternoon.

Four 911 callers tell operators about what was happening at their workplace.

"When was the last time you heard shots fired?" one operator asked.

"Within two minutes," the caller replied.

After a couple of minutes on the phone, another caller informs an operator that he's discovered the suspect is the husband of a Bergey employee.

"He's an older man, the shooter. I just got told his name is Bill. He's the husband of one of the women working in the office," he said.

Norman police have identified the suspect as Williams Adams.

One call came from a woman who identified herself as the shooter's wife. She sounds frantic as she talks and even forgets the address to her workplace.

"22.... I don't even remember the... Bergey Windpower on Industrial Blvd," she tells the operator when she's asked what was going on. "My husband just came in and shot the office manager with a shotgun," she said.

Police say a worker, Colette Wind, was shot in the arm. Thursday she was still in the hospital listed in fair condition.

In the 911 calls, callers report the shooter was down. Some report another employee took his guns and shot him with them.

When police arrive, the body cam shows a man was on the floor. Police say he had been shot in the face and neck. His face was blurred in the video by police before they released it to FOX 25.
