Jovan Belcher Update: Chiefs player's mom begged dying girlfriend to live while waiting for help
(AP) KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Recordings of a 911 call show Jovan Belcher's mother begging her son's dying girlfriend to stay alive after the Kansas City Chiefs linebacker shot her.
Cheryl Shepherd called 911 Saturday shortly after Belcher shot 22-year-old Kasandra Perkins at their home. Belcher then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and shot himself in the head in the presence of his general manager and coach.
On the Kansas City Fire Department recordings, Shepherd yells at Perkins: "Stay with me, the ambulance is on the way. Stay with me."
Shepherd tells the dispatcher that Perkins is "just barely" breathing and that she is bleeding.
Belcher's mother also says her son and Perkins were arguing and that he had left the house.
Police say they found Perkins body on the bedroom floor with multiple gunshot wounds.
