12/5/2012 5:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Jovan Belcher
's mother frantically called 911 moments after the Kansas City Chiefs football player shot his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins multiple times Saturday morning ... pleading with the operator to send help ASAP while Jovan's newborn baby cried hysterically in the background. 

During the call, Jovan's mother told the operator "Oh my God. Oh my God, Cassie ... The baby is crying ... get the ambulance here please!"

She continued "She is still breathing but barely. Please hurry. I don't know how many times he shot her. They were arguing."

The 911 operator asked if Kasandra was bleeding -- Belcher's mother replied, "Yes she is."

Kasandra was rushed to a nearby hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

As for Belcher, he drove to the Kansas City Chiefs football facility at Arrowhead Stadium and shot himself in the head in front of team staff.

The baby is now in the custody of Belcher's mother.

You know what gets me?! People saying he was a good guy and how sad it is that he is dead. Obviously he was not a good guy, or he wouldn't have shot his child's mother several times, then went to Arrowhead and shot himself in front of the Chiefs staff. The only sad thing about this, is the fact that he took and innocent woman's life instead of taking his own first.

I cant believe that 911 operator asking Mrs. Belcher "is she bleeding ". that is exactly the stupid questions you get from this operators. The baby was spared and technically safe. I'm surprise he didn't shot his own mother. its a shame to know how our emergency response staff are asking the most obvious questions...if you get shot your going to bleed why ask.

This is really a sad story, with that being said, its not HIS mother fault that he shot her. It's not like she (Belchers Mom) conspired with him to hide the murder! She seems shocked bythis tragedy alongside everyone else.

911 operator's should be required by law to be licensed by the state just like any other job where you have to place your life in someone else's hands. They have been accountable for so many lives lost because they ask stupid questions after a person has been shot, "is she bleeding?". Lord help us!

Ok let see here. I am one to think outside of the box and not just take in what the media reports. So she went to a Trey song concert that night AND he had dinner with another chick and spent the night there. He then came home, he was pissed? Could it be that he was gay/bisexual and his girlfriend knew about it, so he ended her life and too ashamed of it, he then killed himself. Hey, you never know.

Very sad...sadly many people in this country no longer value human life. I have no sorrow for this coward who killed himself, he may thought he was tough on the football field, but in real life he is a coward...I am waiting for the media or the NFL to blame his actions on some head injury playing football...they always use that cheap excuse. It has only been over the last few years where football head injuries are blamed for everything. It's just the new hot topic and trend to blame football concussions on everything. I might also add banning guns would never stop killings like this to happen.( yes Bob Costas is wrong).if this guy did not or could not find a gun he would have killed using anything in the house, or even his own fists...these type of people are insane, banning guns will not fix this problem. The problem in this country is not guns the problem in this country is failure of the family core, and lack of respect for others. Human life has no value anymore in this country, this society is really sick.
