Brandy’s legal troubles began Sunday at around 5:30 p.m. when police were called to the 2000 block of Elsmere Avenue. The 15-year-old daughter of Brandy called police asking them to bring officers to arrest her father.

“I need you all to come (to the residence) and take this man to jail for being a woman beater on his own daughter,” the teenager says.

She told dispatchers that the man had a razor and a knife when he attacked her.

But during the call, the teenager stops responding to the dispatcher’s questions, and the phone call ends.

Then a new call begins minutes later that was placed by a man saying that he shot his daughter. He asks for emergency personnel to respond to the address immediately.

“I just shot my daughter,” the man says. “Please send somebody quick.”

The man can be heard trying to treat the teenage victim. The dispatcher attempted to talk to the man again to obtain more information, but the call instead ends.

Then the third and last call is placed by the teenager, pleading for help.

“Please come get me, I need help,” she says. “I got shot, please help me. Please Lord, I need you.”

The third call ends with an officer getting on the live line and telling dispatcher that emergency responders are at the scene.
