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

The player is Jovan Belcher, a linebacker from West Babylon, NY, according to multiple reports.

KCTV 5 says police told them coaches confronted Belcher in Arrowhead Stadium's parking lot, and while they were talking to him, as cops were arriving, he shot himself in the head.

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.

"About (7:50 a.m), we got a call to a residence, in regards to a shooting, on the 5400 block of Crysler Ave," Snapp told NFL.com. "We arrived and the lady there informed us that her daughter had been shot by her on-again, off-again boyfriend. The young woman was taken to a local hospital, where she died a short time later.

"At about 8:10 a.m., we received a call to the Arrowhead practice facility in regards to a black male armed with a gun in the parking lot, and he matched the description of the shooting suspect," Snapp continued. "Officers arrived, saw a black man with a gun to his head, and some Chiefs employees. As the officer got out of his car, he heard a gunshot. It appeared the individual shot himself. He was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead."

Arrowhead Stadium has been lockdown since about 8 a.m.
