911 help call released in Jesup murder/suicide


More light is being shed on a Jesup shooting that left two people dead after the 911 tapes and information on the weapon were released.

911 tapes have been released in a Jesup shooting that left two people dead.

On March 21st, Dr. Timothy Roses shot and killed 22-year-old Lindsay Nichols before he turned the gun on himself.

Nichols' boyfriend, Chase Weber called 911 for help when Lindsay got into an argument with "a man with a gun" in a driveway.

The man was 45-year-old Dr. Tim Roses, who had previously been in a relationship with Nichols.

Buchanan County Attorney Shawn Harden said Roses was trying to persuade Nichols to get in his truck before shooting her.

More information about the gun Roses used is also becoming public. An unidentified person may face federal charges for an illegal sale of a handgun.

According to Harden,  Roses purchased 9-millimeter handgun two years ago from a work colleague in Waterloo.  Since Roses was not an Iowa resident resident, he could not legally purchase a gun in Iowa. The seller's name has not been released. It will be up to federal prosecutors to determine whether to bring charges.

The 911 call could be too graphic for some of our viewers.
