The Kansas City Fire Department released two Jovan Belcher-related 911 calls on Wednesday, one placed by Belcher's mother and another made by an official at Arrowhead Stadium.

Belcher's mother, Cheryl Shepherd, 54, said she was not happy about the release Wednesday of recordings of the emergency phone call she made Saturday after Perkins was shot.

"I just got a phone call that they did that, and I don't appreciate it," she said. "Right now I don't want to talk about it."

In the emergency call, Shepherd begs Perkins to "stay with me" while frantically asking for an ambulance. She tells the dispatcher that Perkins is "still breathing but please hurry. ... They were arguing, please hurry."

Shepherd also told dispatchers that Perkins was bleeding, "just barely" awake and that it looked as though she was wounded in the back. She said Perkins moved when she spoke to her.

When a police dispatcher asked about Belcher, Shepherd says only: "He left."

Police arrived at the home about 7:50 a.m. They said in an incident report that they found Perkins' body on the floor of the master bathroom. She had been shot multiple times.

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.

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?

A short time later, a 911 call was made from Arrowhead Stadium, where Belcher had seemingly already committed suicide. Again, Yahoo! Sports provides a 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.
