Shooting at Arrowhead- Chiefs player commits suicide

No details yet. Just came across on the news.

edit: Sources say the player is Jovan Belcher. Police have yet to confirm.

An unnamed Kansas City Chiefs player has committed suicide at the team facility and authorities are on the scene, the police confirmed to ESPN on Saturday morning.

Local reports say police are operating with the belief the player fatally shot his girlfriend at a house before driving to Arrowhead Stadium and killing himself at around 8 a.m local time. The Associated Press reported the player's age to be 25.

"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."

There were no other injuries at the team facility, police said.

The Chiefs (1-10) were preparing to host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

The NFL has told the Panthers to travel as planned to Kansas City on Saturday, the Charlotte Observer has reported, citing interim general manager Brandon Beane.

This is so sad. Not a huge fan of Belcher, but he was a member of the family I love, that being the Chiefs.

When ESPN finally released his name, I literally started crying. I feel horrible for the families of the victims, especially the child left behind.

Not sure how I feel about Belcher. I feel sorry for the man and what was going on in his life to lead to this, yet I am outraged by his actions

What a horrible day.

These teams have a combined record of 4-18. I can't imagine postponing or even canceling the game would mean much to anybody in the grand scheme of things.

If Goodell doesn't reschedule the game, fans should not enter the facility until the end of the first quarter to send the message that some things in life are more important than a game.

Again, not just you but many on here, you haven't thought all ancillaries through.

There are thousands of people making hourly wages tomorrow that would not be able to do so later in the week due to scheduling commitments. The Chiefs and the NFL make money whether the game is played on Sunday, Monday, or at 3 in the morning on Wednesday.

The vendors shuffling up and down the stairs, the bellhops working their asses off in the nearby hotels, the servers at many local restaurants, etc will not make money just before Christmas if the date is changed. If I am hawking Miller Lite at the stadium for an hourly wage, not getting any tips because the price is already ridiculous, and straining up and down those stairs to make a few extra pennies for Christmas for my kids, I would be upset if I couldn't do it on Monday night because I am back at my full time job then.

Why is it that businesses are painted as evil entities regardless of their decisions?

Chiefs player involved in apparent murder-suicide at team facility

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.

The Chiefs (1-10) are scheduled to play at Arrowhead Stadium Sunday at noon CT, against the Carolina Panthers (3-8). One league source in the NFL office said officials were still trying to decide Saturday morning whether the game will be played on Sunday as scheduled. He said his guess was that the game would not be postponed or canceled, due to the complications of when to re-schedule the game in the remaining weeks of the season, or how a cancellation might affect the other 30 teams in the league in terms of competitive fairness.

"There is a ripple effect,'' the source said. "It's not simply two teams affected here. I'm not sure in recent history we've ever just canceled a game. But what's under consideration are all the factors involved if they don't play, when do they play? It's a pretty tight schedule to try and make a game up at some later point. These things have to be thought through. Nobody wants to play a football game right now if you're a Kansas City Chief, but what does that do to the other 30 teams? It gets a little complicated from a schedule standpoint and a competitive standpoint.

The league source said the NFL did not feel it was mandatory to make a decison in regards to the game before Carolina boarded its mid-day flight to Kansas City. "If the Panthers have to fly back from Kansas City without having played the game, it's not that big of an issue to deal with,'' the source said. "We'd rather take the time to think through all the ramifications.''

Kansas City mayor Sly James said that he's spoken with the Chiefs, who believe the game Sunday should be played.

Belcher was a fourth-year reserve linebacker who went undrafted out of the University of Maine in 2009. He signed with Kansas City as a collegiate free agent after the draft. As details of the shootings continue to come in, a Chiefs team source said Kansas City officials are still in the early stages of dealing with the tragedy.
Good write up. Thanks for the post.

Honestly the more I think about it maybe they should postpone the game anyway. The players might not even be in a mental state to make an appropriate decision. Asking someone to make a decision a few hours after one of their teammates shot himself is brutal.

This is a time to support the remaining family and friends to help them out thru this so this does not happen again anytime soon.
