Monday investigators released the dramatic 911 call from a woman who was allegedly killed by her former boyfriend before he shot himself in the parking lot of a Fuquay-Varina church.Jammie Street was shot and killed moments after making a 911 call. Her boyfriend, Jerome Montgomery is charged with first-degree murder.

When police arrived at the St. Augusta Missionary Baptist Church on the morning of October 7, they knew the situation was dangerous.

Street had just called 911 after dropping off her two oldest children at the before and after school care center. She had planned to take her youngest child to a nearby daycare.

However, she never made it because she was interrupted by the child's father, a man she had tried to end a relationship with.

On the call, Street is heard asking for police. "Can I get a police officer at St. Augusta Church, now?" she asked the 911 dispatcher.

Street went on to tell the dispatcher that there was someone there with a gun in his pocket and he was about to kill himself. "This is not the first time," Street said. "Can I get a cop out here now?"

Street sounded calm as she described her boyfriend.

"Jerome Montgomery," she said. "Tall, dark skinned male with a black -- Jerome, stop!" That statement was followed by a rustling sound and screams.

Apparently Montgomery grabbed her out of her vehicle and her phone was left behind. The two then moved toward the road.

That's when the director of the child care program came out of the building and found Street's youngest child. The director said the couple was involved in a physical struggle nearby.

During the final portion of the call there are the sounds of gunshots and screams.

A total of four shots were fired and Street was hit three times. She fell just off the pavement onto the road next to the church and died at the scene.

Montogmery shot himself in the chest and fell in the middle of the road. He survived.

He is charged with murder and is under the watch of a guard while he recovers at WakeMed in Raleigh.
