The tapes were released to the Danbury News-Times after they filed a Freedom of Information Act request, 1010 WINS reported.

Jeffrey Giuliano went outside with a gun at about 1 a.m. on Sept. 27 after his sister called to say someone was trying to break into her house next door in New Fairfield, police said.

Giuliano saw a person wearing a ski mask holding a shiny object come toward him in a threatening manner and shot him, authorities said.

He was told later the person he killed was his 15-year-old son, Tyler.

Giuliano’s sister, speaking rapidly and trying to catch her breath, says she wasn’t sure if her brother was shot. Giuliano’s wife also called police.

The 911 calls were released Friday.
