A 911 call from the home of Junior Seau released Friday captures the voice of a woman who is horrified to find the former NFL linebacker in a spare bedroom with a gunshot wound to the chest.
"My God, my boyfriend shot himself! Oh my God!" the eight-minute call begins.
The woman, who identifies herself as Megan, said she was returning to the home Wednesday morning from a one-hour visit to the gym.
The caller is nearly hysterical and breathing heavily during much of the call as emergency workers guide her through life-saving measures that failed.
"Where is the gun?" the dispatcher asks.
"It's next to him in the bed," she answers.
"What is your boyfriend's name?"
"Junior Seau," she says.
The dispatcher asks where he was shot.
"I can't tell, ma'am. It looks like in the heart," she said.
She told the dispatcher that he did not have a pulse and that his chest was not moving.
UNION FILES GRIEVANCE: The NFL players union has challenged Commissioner Roger Goodell's authority to suspend players who participated in the New Orleans Saints' pay-for-pain scandal and wants him removed from hearing appeals.
The union filed a grievance late Thursday. The complaint says Goodell is prohibited from punishing players for any aspect of the case occurring before the new collective bargaining agreement was signed last August. It argues that a CBA system arbitrator, and not Goodell, has the right to decide player punishment under such circumstances, as well as rule on any appeals.
