According to the Sheriff’s Office, Hamed called a 911 operator twice asking to speak to a deputy.
He told one of the operators he had a knife and some rocks.
“My name is Ismail Hamed,” the man tells an operator, according to one of the 911 call recordings. “I live in Fountain Hills, and I’m owing my allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. I just want a cop to come real quick and I want to deal with them.” …
When [responding officer] Wells asks for his ID, Hamed throws rocks at Wells, the video shows.
Wells points his gun at Hamed and tells him to back off. Hamed pulls out a knife.
