A Denver, Colorado mother has been shot dead in front of her children by her ‘hallucinating’ while she was on a 13 minute call to 911, police said.

Kristine Kirk, 44, called for help around 9:30p.m. Monday, telling dispatchers that her husband Richard Kirk, 47, was ‘talking about the end of the world’ and ‘scarring’ their three children. A source told FOX31 investigators are looking at whether he had eaten a marijuana cookie.

Mrs Kirk said in the 911 call that there was a gun in the house but it was in a safe, according to a probable cause statement.

‘She then said that her husband retrieved the gun from the safe and she began to scream,’ the statement reads. A gunshot could then be heard followed by silence.

Officers arrived on the scene shortly after the shooting.

‘They were almost there,’ Sonny Jackson, a Denver Police Department spokesman, told The Denver Post.

The 911 call lasted 13 minutes, police said. The delayed response time is being investigated by the DPD.

‘Anytime a person dies while communicating with Denver’s emergency services, we examine the circumstances to ensure that the incident was handled properly and we look for areas to improve upon,’ Jackson said.

The call initially came through as a domestic disturbance but the longer it went on the more alarming it became, he said.
