I am seeing some Chiefs fans saying it's Jovan Belcher.

Saw the same thing on deadspin a few minutes ago. Possibly in front of Crennel and Pioli after killing his girlfriend. Really weird, sad stuff. My prayers are with Chiefs nation this morning.

What I am reading, and take this with a grain of salt, that Jovan Belcher shot and killed his girlfriend, drove to the practice facility, then shot himself.

Sad stuff.

KC Chiefs' Jovan Belcher fatally shoots girlfriend, self: reports

From ASSOCIATED PRESS
Last Updated: 12:00 PM, December 1, 2012
Posted: 11:21 AM, December 1, 2012

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.

Sad when I know what story I am going to be having to put together tonight at work.

I will never understand what makes a human being get to this point. I have had a rough year and never in my wildest nightmares does this result ever come out.

Death
This series of business misfortunes culminated on September 15, 1980 when Tyrer, the father of four, shot his wife and then committed suicide by turning the gun on himself.[1] He is survived by his four children - Tina, Brad, Stefanie, and Jason. His four grandchildren are Braden, Truman, Austin, and Luke.

As a Chiefs fan, I'm sorry to report this isn't the first time such a tragedy has

Coward. Murder suicide people are such cowards. Just skip the murder and go straight to the suicide. Should have just killed himself in a nice quiet place. Now his baby in parentless. And I feel for the Chiefs coaching staff.

Thoughts and prayers to all those affected.

Very much agree. Without knowing the facts, IF it was indeed a murder/suicide, man, just kill your own damned self and leave those who want to live alone.

When your whole existence/legacy in this world comes down to creating pain, sorrow, misery and trauma--you're just pathetic, absolutely pathetic.

Being blessed to make it to the NFL, being a high income earner, having access to the security that comes from savings $, beautiful paid off home (presumably), nice cars and being able to be a guiding father to your child and this is how you repay society???

Thanksgiving 2012 "Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours" -Facebook picture caption




A Bentley Continental GT similar to this was towed from the Chiefs facility. NFL network showed this decent 3 car garage, 2 story home (probably the home from the above thanksgiving 2012 pics above)
With his now 3 mo. old recently coming into this world, it would seem he had everything to live for.
