Police say Kristine Kirk called saying her husband was “'totally hallucinating,” and scaring their children.

During the call, Richard Kirk can be heard talking about the candy he bought from a legal pot store in Colorado before the incident.

Kirk told dispatchers her husband had taken prescription pain pills along with eating the candy and asked her to get a gun and shoot him.

The frightened woman can be heard begging police to hurry, saying she was "scared of what he might do," after he began to rant about the end of the world.

Documents obtained after the incident described Kirk’s the final moments.

"She next related that he had the gun, and she did not know where to go," warrants say. A few seconds later there was screaming followed by a gunshot.

Then, 12 minutes into the call, the line went silent.

The Denver Post reports when cops arrived, they found Kristine Kirk dead from a gunshot wound to the head.

Denver police say Kirk admitted the shooting when they arrived. They also confirm he was slurring his speech and appeared to be under the influence of drugs.

In a Thursday news conference, Denver Police Chief Robert White said the 911 dispatcher had been placed on leave and admitted, “obviously something went wrong because somebody lost their life."

 No, I don't think so either.  That was just what the title of the article was.
