Kansas City Chiefs player Jovan Belcher killed his girlfriend and then shot himself at Arrowhead Stadium.
ESPN New York reported:

A 25-year-old Kansas City Chiefs player shot his girlfriend early Saturday, then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and turned the gun on himself as two team officials were confronting him, police said.

Kansas City police Supervisor Andrea Khan would not release the name of the player involved and the condition of the two parties was not immediately known.

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 locked 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.”

The season has been a massive disappointment for the Chiefs, who were expected to contend for the AFC West title.

Jovan became a father on September 11, 2012.

    Was it really necessary for the reporter to comment on the “disappointment” of the Chief’s season in this particular story?—WTF?

  • Economan

    Terrible news.

    Erin, you are a gold-plated loser. Please cease and desist from demonstrating your idiocy, thank you.

    RIP, young man. The worst result of this tragedy is a child who will never know his mother or father, and the family, friends and coworkers who will ask themselves if they could have prevented this from happening.

  • I think it is high time Football is re-evaluated as a sport that it is utterly destructive to the players and their surroundings. It’s not possible that there is no connection between this game with constant blows to the head and the suicides of Junior Seau, Ray Easterling, many others and now this murder-suicide.

    Many who love this game might disagree, but I stopped watching it for this reason. As a Roman Catholic, I believe that it is a grave sin to compromise your own physical and mental health as well as that of others in such a fashion.

  • More proof that big success, fame and money don’t buy contentedness or happiness. So sad.

    It’s a potential explanation for why this happened. It’s a Richard Cory story.

    It’s not unheard-of for a man faced with financial reverses to kill himself. Some kill their families. Some have affairs. All of these are forms of murder/suicide.

    Well, bully for you.

    Now, go wave your finger at somebody else.

    If the electorate could become better educated as to the principles of macroeconomics, the principles of Constitutional government, and history, perhaps they would stop paying attention to these overpaid athletes, and stop voting for Obama.

  • mg4us

    Obama just commented. . If I had a son he would have looked like Treyvan and played football like Jovan. . ugh

    Both worthless pieces of $#it like the President himself.

    This is what happens when kids have no self value, self-respect or sense of worth. . .all about the her and now and not working hard and contributing to build a better life for oneself and others. .

    Welcome to the Obamanation!

    I have my doubts whether this murderer will rest in peace, srdem65, but it’s a nice sentiment. Ill-placed in my opinion, I might add.

  • This is a tough time for many people. May these two poor souls somehow find peace.

  • Truth Teller

    Can’t outlaw naïveté, Erin Pruitt or you would have been outlawed at birth.

  • Stop giving your hard earned money to watch or promote “professional” football teams – all the management cares about is $$$$$$ – they hire murderers, animal or wife abusers and many criminal types to play their game – so they get more $$$$$ – there is no morality or caring.

    It is a game.

    For money.

    You have a wallet.

    Close it.

    Its a black thing…

  • Maudie N Mandeville

    I guess some fans don’t miss an opportunity. Commenter on a KC website: ‘Authorities have not confirmed the identity of the player involved, but we can be certain it wasn’t one of the team’s quarterbacks, or he’d have missed and struck an opposing player instead.’
