Chiefs' Player Involved in Apparent Murder-Suicide

| No Comments

A Kansas City Chiefs linebacker committed suicide early Saturday morning at the team's Arrowhead Stadium, CNN reported.

Jovan Belcher, 25, shot himself that morning, Kansas City police confirmed. The shooting occurred after Belcher allegedly killed his girlfriend at home shortly beforehand.

He and the woman he killed left behind a 3-month-old daughter.

Kansas City, Missouri police received a call at approximately 7:50 a.m. alerting them to a shooting. When police arrived outside the home, a woman came out and told them that a younger woman had been shot by her boyfriend several times. The woman was identified as 22-year-old Kasandra Perkins.

After shooting Perkins, Belcher then drove to the team's facilities. He apparently killed himself in the parking lot of the complex, in front of coach Romeo Crennel and GM Scott Pioli, according to Sports Illustrated.

The Chiefs released a statement saying: "We can confirm that there was an incident at Arrowhead earlier this morning. We are cooperating with authorities in their investigation.''
