Tragedy struck in the NFL early Saturday morning with the news that a Kansas City Chiefs player committed suicide at the team's Arrowhead Stadium practice facility, after shooting and killing his girlfriend at home a short time earlier, SI.com has learned.

The player who shot himself is fourth-year linebacker Jovan Belcher, 25, Kansas City police have confirmed. There are no other known injuries at the Chiefs facility.

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.''

According to police, Belcher shot and killed his girlfriend, 22, at home around 8 a.m. CT, with the woman's mother present and a witness to the murder. Belcher then drove to the team facility, where he later shot and killed himself in the parking lot of the team complex, in front of GM Scott Pioli and coach Romeo Crennel, as well as other team personnel. A KCPD spokesman said Pioli and Crennel tried to talk to Belcher, who thanked the men before taking his life. Belcher and his girlfriend had a three-month-old child.

I can't imagine how horrible it was for the GM and coach to witness this after they tried in vain to get him to put down the gun.
A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.

I don't think so.

He obviously had confidence issues to begin with.....to shoot his girlfriend dead.   

Despite his monied lifestyle...somebody was rejecting him.   How dare they?

...even though the Chiefs are 1-12 and an embarrassment to the league.


It's reported that he shot her in front of HER mother?   Can you imagine HER pain right now? 

This is a tragedy on multiple levels.

yah...I can only imagine how Coach Romeo Crennell and team GM Scott Pioli feel this morning after having this occur right in front of them.  This was an incredibly selfish and gutless act and both men are lucky he didn't take them with him too.

Sickening.
