Jovan Belcher's mom pleaded with her son's girlfriend to stay alive while calling 911, according to a recording released Wednesday of the emergency call.

“Stay with me, the ambulance is on the way. Stay with me Kasandra, stay with me,” Cheryl Shepherd says on the recording of her call with Kansas City emergency dispatchers.

“She's still breathing but please hurry,” Shepherd says. “I don't know how he [inaudible], they were arguing, please hurry."

The couple's infant daughter, Zoey, is heard crying in the background as her grandmother pleads for help.

Belcher shot Kasandra Perkins at their Kansas City home Saturday morning, then drove to Arrowhead Stadium, where he shot himself in the head.

Shepherd told dispatchers that Perkins was bleeding and that it looked as though she was wounded in the back.

When asked about Belcher, Shepherd says “He left.”
