The father accused of pointing a gun at his 9-month-old daughter and pulling the trigger during an argument with her mother made a chilling 911 call seconds after the shooting.

"I just killed my daughter," Christopher Rains is heard telling the dispatcher in a recording released Wednesday.

Rains, 22, made the call to 911 around 3:45 p.m. Tuesday. Responding officers found his daughter dead from a gunshot wound to the head.

On Wednesday Rains made his first appearance. Metropolitan Court Judge Victor Valdez set his bond at $500,000 cash only saying he felt Rains would be a danger to the community.

Police quoted Rains as saying he shot his daughter "because my ex-girlfriend doesn't want me anymore."

The 911 call lasted seven minutes. During that time Rains told the dispatcher he shot his baby in the head as her mother, who admitted to Rains she'd spoken to another man, watched helplessly.
