The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department today released chilling audio of a 911 call made at the scene of a California mayor's fatal shooting.

Daniel Crespo, mayor of Bell Gardens, California, was allegedly shot by his wife, Levette, during a domestic incident last week, and the audio of the dramatic call made by the couple's son, Daniel Crespo Jr., appears to substantiate those reports.

"It's my father. He's in the house, OK? It wasn't my mom's fault," an emotional Crespo Jr. told an emergency dispatcher during the call. "She was defending herself."

After clarifying to the operator that his mother shot his father, the emotional teenager said, "He hurt me. He's on the floor dying, OK? He hurt me."

Levette Crespo told authorities that she shot her husband in self-defense after he attacked their son, who had attempted to break up an argument between the parents.
