Police release 911 tape in fatal police shooting

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - A sobbing woman is heard pleading on a recorded 911 call for Charlotte-Mecklenburg police to "please hurry" after telling a dispatcher that a man was breaking into her front door.
   
The call came moments before that man was shot and killed by one of three officers responding to the call last Saturday.
   
The unidentified woman kept repeating "Oh, my god! Oh, my god!" throughout the call. She also told the 911 operator that she had a baby in a crib and didn't know what to do. Later, she said the man knocked on her door and "he's in my front yard yelling."
   
Authorities say Jonathan A. Ferrell was shot 10 times by a Charlotte-Mecklenburg officer after being involved in a single-car wreck.
   
Officer Randall Kerrick is charged with voluntary manslaughter.
