Junior Seau

The Frantic 911 Call

'My BF Just Shot Himself'

5/4/2012 1:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained the horrific 911 call placed by Junior Seau's girlfriend moments after the NFL legend shot himself in the chest Wednesday morning at his Oceanside, CA home.

Junior's GF Megan Noderer (below) is so hysterical during the call she can hardly speak -- claiming she had just returned from the gym (around 10AM) when she discovered Junior's bloody body.

Megan tells the dispatcher, Junior wasn't breathing when she arrived and had appeared to have shot himself "in the heart."

Authorities responded and attempted to revive Seau, but life-saving efforts were unsuccessful. Seau was pronounced dead on the scene soon after. He was 43.

Seau's family claims he exhibited no signs of depression before his death -- but has since donated his brain to be studied for concussion research.

As we previously reported, the manner in which Seau killed himself -- gunshot to the chest -- is leading many to believe he wanted to leave his brain intact so researchers could study the long-term effects of concussions sustained in the NFL.

TMZ - that was cruel. As a San Diegan, I find your invasion of privacy very upsetting. JR's family deserves privacy. RIP #55

TMZ: I come to your site daily but I absolutely REFUSE to listen to 911 calls.

Well, I read your "news" occasionally but after what you just did here, revealing a tragic 911 call like this, you have lost another reader. Goodbye.

Man, why did I listen to that?

The one thing I'll say, though, is this should end any conspiracists out there that would think she had anything to do with it.

Poor girl. I can't imagine going through that. Great job by 911 operators btw. They were outstanding.

TMZ, you suck! It is tragic enough that this beloved person took his life. You do not need to promote these tragic events with this horrific phone call. Shame on you! All of this for $ or viewers or whatever. Your whole network is just disgusting!

"the manner in which Seau killed himself -- gunshot to the chest -- is leading many to believe he wanted to leave his brain intact so researchers could study the long-term effects of concussions sustained in the NFL."

Wow - Because he shot himself in chest you can extrapolate all of that? Amazing.

Maybe this will be a heads up to those that consider suicide.....I wish that a few things could happen when someone commits suicide...one....for them to be able to look down and see the utter devestation they did to their physical body....two.... to look down and see the utter horror and pain their loved ones go thru when they find them, and for the rest of their lives, having that scene replay in their head, and having to live without them...and three...to be able to fast forward a year, two, five, etc...and see that whatever was going on in their lives/minds at the time are no longer revelant/important and things are better now.That there WAS a light at the end of the tunnel...IMO people who commit suicide are THE most selfish people of all, and I am saddened by their loved ones having to live through it and put their lives back together!

TMZ--i l made the mistake of listening to this recording and wish I hadn't.

Have a heart--be decent and take this OFF the internet. My God--how pathetic can you people get? Remove it. What if it were a close family of one of you? You folks definitely crossed the line with this one... Just how low can you go?
