ALBUQUERQUE, NM — In the space of just minutes, police dispatchers fielded thirty 911 calls from frantic employees Monday morning while Robert Reza rampaged through the Emcore Corp. building with a semiautomatic handgun, authorities said Tuesday.

"You could hear complete chaos," Police Chief Ray Schultz said in an interview as he described the calls. "People were running for their lives, whispering that they were hiding under desks and in other places in the building."
