The Kansas City Fire Department has released the audio of 911 calls received in the midst of the Jovan Belcher/Kasandra Perkins tragedy. Calls were received both from Belcher's mother at the scene of Perkins' murder and from Arrowhead Stadium, the scene of  Belcher's suicide.

Audio from Belcher 911 calls (click to hear). (six minutes of confusion, terror, hopelessness)

Dispatcher: You did the right thing. [Simultaneous talking] We need the address.
Caller: The address is [redacted]. Yes. Please get the ambulance here. Please. [redacted] Oh God, Kasi.
Dispatcher: We have a shooting at [redacted]. It sounds like. Ma'am, her name is [redacted]? Is it an apartment?
Caller: It's a house! [Inaudible] Please hurry!
Dispatcher: Ma'am? Let me see if I can help you. Are you with the baby now? [Simultaneous talking] We're on the way. We've been on the way the whole time. How old is the patient?
Caller: 22.
Dispatcher: Male or female?
Caller: Female.
Dispatcher: Is she breathing?
Caller: She's still breathing but barely. Please hurry. I don't know how many times he shot her. They were arguing.
Dispatcher: So she's been shot?
Caller: Yes. (To victim) The ambulance is on the way! You hear me? You hear this? Fight!
Dispatcher: Is she awake? Does she hear what you're saying?
Caller: Yes. She's moving when I talk to her.
Dispatcher: Is she bleeding?
Caller: Yes, she is. (baby crying in background)
Dispatcher: Where is she bleeding from?
Caller: I can't tell - in the back, it looks like.
Dispatcher: OK. We don't want - Go ahead. Where is your son at?
Caller: (Inaudible) Just get the ambulance here, please.
Dispatcher: We're on the way. Where is your son at?
Caller: He left.
Dispatcher: He left?
Caller: Yes.
Dispatcher: OK, they were arguing and he shot her?
Caller: Yes, yes, they were arguing.
Dispatcher: OK. What's your son's name?
Caller: [Redacted] Please just get the ambulance here.
Dispatcher: Ma'am...
Caller: I have to get the baby.
Dispatcher: What kind of car did your son leave in? Or is he on foot? ... Sounds like she disconnected. She doesn't want to answer questions. Ma'am, are you there? ... Ma'am?

Shortly afterward, a call came from Arrowhead Stadium, where Belcher had apparently already committed suicide.
Partial Transcript:
Caller: Hello. We need a Code One ambulance although they think he's probably dead. Number 1 Arrowhead Drive - that's the practice field at the Chiefs Stadium. It's a self-inflicted shooting. It's a done deal. They've got a player that shot himself.
Dispatcher: A player?
Caller: Yeah.
Dispatcher: What parking lot?
Caller: They still need you.
Dispatcher: We're on our way.
