Police released the 911 call made by Jovan Belcher’s mother after the Kansas City Chief linebacker shot his girlfriend multiple times Saturday morning.

During the call, Belcher’s mother Cheryl Shepherd begged her son’s dying girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, to stay alive while frantically asking for an ambulance, according to a recording released Wednesday of the emergency call.

Belcher, 25, shot Perkins, 22, at their Kansas City home Saturday morning, then drove to Arrowhead Stadium, where he shot himself in the head in front of Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli and Coach Romeo Crennel.

“She’s still breathing but please hurry,” Shepherd said with Kansas City emergency dispatchers. “I don’t know how he (inaudible), they were arguing, please hurry.”
