LINDON, Utah — Lindon police have released some recordings of 911 calls placed Thursday night from the neighborhood where a man was shot to death.

The 911 calls have been heavily redacted, which accounts for the silent moments in the recordings (above).

The shooting occurred in a home near 175 N 400 in Lindon.  Fred Lee, 59, was taken into custody in connection with the shooting.  Lee allegedly shot and killed Mike Sidwell, the man who married Lee’s ex-wife, Joy Sidwell.

At one point in the recording, one of the people who called 911 said “the shooter’s in the house.” The 911 recording then captured an apparent conversation between the 911 caller and Lee.

“This is my property. This is my property. I got cheated out of it by Joy,” a voice on the recording said.

Lindon police officials told FOX 13 Lee grew up in the home where the shooting occurred and that Lee’s family owned the property.  Police also said Fred Lee and Joy Sidwell developed part of the land into condominiums while they were still married.
