PEARLAND, TX - A 911 call reveals that in the minutes before she allegedly shot her ex-boyfriend multiple times and turned the gun on herself, Monica Jordan called her ex-husband and asked him to come to her Pearland home.

"I just got a call from my ex-wife. She was distraught. She asked me to come over there and to call the police," Rohaven Richards told a 911 dispatcher, who asked him if Jordan said there was violence going on.

"I certainly got that impression," Richards responded. "She said it's an emergency. I'm on my way over there now. She asked me to call."

When Richards and police got to the home, they found Darryl Hamilton shot several times near the entrance to the home. Jordan was in another part of the house, the victim of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot. Hamilton and Jordan had a 14-month-old son who was home when the shooting happened, but he wasn't hurt.

Hamilton spent more than a decade in the major leagues before becoming an MLB Network analyst.
