The three-minute call released by Los Angeles Fire Department includes a statement by April Jace's father that actor Michael Jace said he shot his wife and asked his father-in-law to come and get the couple's two young children.

Jace, who played Officer Julian Lowe in acclaimed police drama The Shield, was arrested on May 19 and police say he called 911 to report that he had shot his wife. That call was not released.

His lawyers, Jason Sias and Jamon Hicks, did not comment on the audio's contents but noted the case is still in its early stages and their investigation continues.

Jace is scheduled to be arraigned on June 18.
