On recordings of 911 calls, Javon Belcher’s mother is pleading with her son’s dying girlfriend to stay alive after the Kansas City Chiefs linebacker shot her. Cheryl Shepherd made the call to 911 Saturday morning shortly after Belcher shot Kasandra Perkins at their home. Belcher then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and shot himself in the presence of Scott Pioli and Romeo Crennel.

Belcher’s mother says her son and Perkins were arguing and that he had left the house. Prior to that she tells dispatchers that Perkins is “just barely” breathing and that she is bleeding.
