A New Mexico dispatcher has resigned after telling a panicked 911 caller who was trying to save the life of a shooting victim to “deal with it yourself.”
Matthew Sanchez was reassigned after officials became aware of the call, fire officials said on Monday. But a statement Tuesday evening from the office of Albuquerque’s chief administrative officer said that Sanchez has resigned from the fire department.
The call was made after Jaydon Chavez-Silver, 17, was shot in June as he watched other teens play cards at a friend’s house in Albuquerque. He later died. Police have not named a suspect and have made no arrests.
