A Kansas City Chief's player fatally shot his girlfriend and then turned the gun on himself on Saturday, Elizabeth Merrill reported.

Javon Belcher, 25, murdered his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, 22, and then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and committed suicide in front of his head coach and general manager. Friends of the couple reported that they had been arguing recently.

According to witnesses, Belcher thanked his coaching staff "for everything they had done for him". He then walked away and shot himself in the head in the facility's parking lot.
