A Kansas City Chiefs player fatally shot himself Saturday morning, according to Kansas City, Mo., police. A team source told that linebacker Jovan Belcher was involved in a shooting at the Chiefs' practice facility.

Kansas City police supervisor Andrea Khan could not identify the player but said the first shooting happened in a Kansas City, Mo., neighborhood and the second happened at Arrowhead Stadium, about five miles away, at about 8 a.m. Saturday.

The Chiefs are scheduled to host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. Panthers interim general manager said the league has told the team to travel to Kansas City as scheduled, according to the Charlotte Observer.

The Chiefs issued a statement that said, "We can confirm that there was an incident at Arrowhead earlier this morning. We are cooperating with authorities in their investigation."

Thoughts and prayers to their families and the Kansas City Chiefs.

Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher this morning shot and killed his girlfriend before going to Arrowhead Stadium and fatally shooting himself as team personnel tried to stop him, police said.

Police Capt. David Lindaman said Belcher, 25, and his girlfriend, 22, got into an argument around 7 a.m. at their home in the 5400 block of Crysler Avenue in Kansas City. Around 7:50 a.m., Lindaman said, Belcher shot his girlfriend multiple times. She was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Lindaman said Belcher’s mother, who was visiting the couple and their 3-month-old daughter, witnessed the shooting and was being interviewed by police.

Belcher left the scene on Crysler and went to the Chiefs practice facility at Arrowhead, police said.

Police were called to the stadium around 8:10 a.m. When Belcher arrived there he encountered General Manager Scott Pioli, Coach Romeo Crennel and other team personnel.

Police said Chiefs staff attempted to keep Belcher from committing additional acts of violence. When police arrived, they heard a gunshot and found that Belcher had shot himself in the head.

Re: KC Chief Shootings
crime of passion?...doesn't sound premeditated, what with his mom standing there witnessing the murder

Re: KC Chief Shootings
Probably, Killer. It happened between 7:00-8:00 AM. I wonder if he was out all night. His poor mother. I'm sure more details regarding his state of mind will come out if/when her statements are made public.

Re: KC Chief Shootings
my God how sickening. Such a tragedy he had to take the mother of his child with him. I don't care what she might have done, if anything at all, to provoke his rage.. That's just so unnecessary and sad.
