Disputing claims from the victim's family that officers went to the wrong address, Inglewood police on Thursday released the radio transcripts of a family disturbance call that resulted in a fatal officer-involved shooting.

Margaret Wilson was roused from sleep early Thursday when a running gun battle between Inglewood police and three gunmen came to a dramatic end just outside her door. Wilson, a retiree who recently bought a condominium with her husband in Inglewood, said the chaotic exchange of gunfire reminded her of the civil war that had forced her to flee Liberia and return to the United States in 1998. "But I didn't think I was going to run into a war in my own backyard," she said.

Awakened by the sound of gunshots, Fanny Paiz opened her window and looked across the dark Inglewood street to a nightmare scene of bloodied neighbors and a house in flames. "I heard a man yelling," Paiz said. "Then I saw a lady run out into the street with a child in her arms. She was bleeding. She was standing in the middle of the street with the child, whose face was covered in blood. She fell down, screaming, 'He's shooting me. He's shooting me.' " Three other shooting victims were in the house, all members of the same family who police say were attacked before dawn Saturday by a rampaging neighbor who was being evicted.

It was a pleasant day, sun shining, afternoon sliding into evening on July 6 when Coby Chavis pulled his tan 1997 Ford Taurus into the Thrifty gas station on Century Boulevard at Freeman Avenue in Inglewood. Chavis, a 41-year-old Inglewood man, is employed in construction scaffolding and has a history of run-ins with police. He was, he said, on his way to visit his father. With him was his son Donovan Jackson, 16, a student at Leuzinger High School in Lawndale. Within hours, Jackson's image would be flashed across the nation, his body pictured being thrown across a police car, his face struck hard with an officer's fist.
