Girl pleads with 911 to help dying mom

Detroit police have released a copy of a chilling 911 call in which an 8-year-old girl has trouble conveying the location of the house in which her mother was fatally shot.

The girl is heard on the recording asking her dying mother for the address.

When a dispatcher asks to give the phone to her mother, the girl responds: "No. She's ... she's almost dead. Mommy! Where we at?"

The Monday shooting claimed the life of 26-year-old Monica Botello as well as 26-year-old Purcell Carson.

Police Chief Warren Evans said Friday that Botello and her children were visiting the home, which is why the girl didn't know the address.

A first-degree murder warrant has been issued against a 42-year-old Detroit man, whom Evans says once served prison time with Carson.
