Kansas City Chiefs Player Jovan Belcher Reportedly Killed His Girlfriend, Then Himself
This is a sad, confusing story.
According to Fox's Jay Glaser, the team has been called down to the stadium to meet.
The Chiefs have released a statement confirming that there was an incident at Arrowhead Stadium this morning.
KCPD tells BuzzFeed Sports that the player pulled into the parking lot and parked "oddly" which raised the concerns of security. A group of coaches and team officials including general manager Scott Pioli went out to the lot and spoke with the player, who was holding a gun to his head. At that point the player thanked them for everything they'd all done for him. When police arrived on the scene they heard a gun shot.
CBS Sports' Jason La Confora reports that the player involved is 25-year-old linebacker Jovan Belcher.
Belcher has been a Chiefs starting linebacker since 2009.
Members of Perkins' family expressed their shock to TMZ.
Members of Kasandra's family tell TMZ ... Jovan and Kasandra always seemed to be in love. In fact, we're told when Kasandra got pregnant, she and Jovan were "ecstatic." The family says ever since the baby was born in September, the two couldn't have seemed happier together.
We'll update this story as more information becomes available.
