The first 911 call was placed by a woman who said she saw a black male standing in the back of a Ford F-150 pick-up truck and beating on the window. Shortly after that, another caller said there was a man in the road with a group of people around him who was "definitely unconscious."

Chris Henry is thought to have jumped in the back of the truck while arguing with his fiancee, Loleini Tonga. At some point, Henry fell out of the truck and was eventually rushed to a hospital where he soon died. Here are transcripts from the two 911 calls placed Wedneday night.

Woman: I need a police officer, I'm on Oak Road, I'm behind a yellow truck. It's a F-150 the tag says. It's got a black male on it with no shirt on and he's got his arm in the cab he's got some black pants on. He's beating on the back of this truck window.
