Shannen Doherty 911 Call

Hi, I'm Famous ...

And My Fan's Suicidal

Shannen Doherty
 had NO IDEA how to explain to a 911 dispatcher why she was calling from across the country to report a suicide threat -- after a NJ fan threatened to kill herself on Twitter last month -- so she settled on the "I'm an actress" routine ... and TMZ has the audio.

TMZ broke the story ... Shannen phoned police in Westhampton Township after receiving several disturbing messages from the fan on Twitter.

In the call, Doherty says, "This is going to sound incredibly strange ... my name is Shannen Doherty and I'm an actress. I'm on Twitter, sadly, and there is a girl that is threatening to shoot herself and she lives somewhere over there."

As we reported, officers were dispatched to the fan's home following Shannen's call -- and were able to confirm the fan was okay. According to the WTPD, officers met with the fan (a 27-year-old woman) who said she had no intentions of actually harming herself.

As for the rest of the 911 call, it's pretty standard -- except for the very end, when the dispatcher breaks character to tell Shannen how his co-workers are obsessed with her.

Don't hear that often.

She did what any decent moral human would do. I question the mental stability of the gal that put the suicidal comment out there. Serious 27 years old, You would have thought that her teenage years would be in her past. Looking for attention or not, She needs help if this is her way of getting any attention at all.

Really    

Famous or not...no one should be objected to threats of any kind! But if you are 'famous' I guess you are supposed to get special treatment. What about the abused women who call the police and are told 'sorry they haven't done anything yet so we can't help you'! Again, regardless of who you are threats should always be taken seriously!

The man that felt sorry for her and tried to help her has been long gone, ever since its been OVER!!
The half a dozen people that knew her are the ones slapped or beaten up

The writers of this story should be embarrassed for writing such tabloid trash. Kudos to Ms. Doherty for doing the right thing.

Ya...TMZ proves how low they can go with that stupid headline. Someone does something good and all they do is sensationalize and slander.

Just to clear the air my daughter has down syndrome and did not understand the consequences of her actions. Quite frankly I never addressed the situation before because I thought it would blow over. Now that Shannen has gotten her five minutes of fame,she neglected to share with the public my daughters handicap,that she has no access to guns, and she merely is admittedly an over zealous fan thats only dream was to get to meet or talk to Shannen. A real hero would have followed through when she found out the above information but like a true Hollywood story, don't believe everything you read!!!
