The call that Jovan Belcher’s mother made in the moments after her son shot his longtime girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, has been released.
On the call, Belcher’s mother can be heard saying “oh my god” repeatedly, and then requesting that an ambulance be dispatched immediately.
Belcher’s three month old baby can be heard crying hysterically in the background throughout various portions of the call.
Perkins was eventually taken to the hospital; unfortunately, at that point there was nothing that could be done. She was pronounced dead soon after.
Belcher ended up killing himself at the Kansas City Chiefs’ training facility shortly after he shot Kasandra.
The entire tape can be heard below (via ABC).
And here is a transcript, via Newsday:
Dispatcher: "Stay with me. You did the right thing.
Belcher's mom: "Get an ambulance here, get an ambulance here. Please."
"It's a house. Please get the ambulance here, please. Oh my God."
"Oh my God Cassie."
Dispatcher: "you're son did this?"
Kasi: "He shot me!" (heard in background"
Mom: "Please send an ambulance for Kasi!"
"The baby's crying!"
"She's still breathing but please hurry . . . I don't know how much time she's got. Dispatcher: "They were arguing. She's been shot?"
Mom: "Cassandra stay with me! The ambulance is on it's way , you hear me? You hear me? Cassandra? Stay with me!"
Dispatcher: "Is She awake?"
Mom: "Barely. She's moving when I talk to her. Please god."
"Please just get the ambulance here."
Dispatcher "Where's your son?
Mom: "He left."
Dispatcher: "Ok, they were arguing and he shot her?"
"Yes there were arguing."
"Ok, what's your son's name?"
Mom goes silent then.
Screaming is heard in background, possibly Cassi's.
A baby's cries are also heard in background through parts of video.
