A Kansas City Chiefs player reportedly shot his girlfriend and then drove to the Kansas City Chiefs facility and turned the gun on himself. Sources are reporting that Chiefs line-backer Jovan Belcher could be the player in question. It is too early to know all the facts surrounding this shooting or the motives that led Belcher to turn to this act of violence. Police spokesman Darin Snapp said authorities received a call Saturday morning from a woman who said her daughter had been shot multiple times at a residence about five miles away from the Arrowhead complex. Snapp said a call was then received from the Chiefs’ practice facility.
Upon arriving, Snapp said that police witnessed a black male in a car with a handgun to his head talking to two Chiefs officials. That’s when police heard a gunshot.
Arrowhead Stadium has been lock-down since about 8 a.m.
“We can confirm that there was an incident at Arrowhead earlier this morning,” the Chiefs said in a statement. “We are cooperating with authorities in their investigation.”
Kansas City is scheduled to host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
