By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher The Kansas City Chiefs are dealing with a tragedy. According to reports, Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher reportedly committed suicide in the team’s parking lot outside of Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. According to the police, he allegedly murdered his girlfriend, before ending his own life. He reportedly had a gun to his head when the authorities arrived. Moments later, he walked away and died from a self-inflected gunshot wound. A team spokesman told NFL.com that Belcher was talking to General Manager Scott Pioli and head coach Romeo Crennel when the authorities arrived at the parking lot. Reportedly, neither man felt like they were in a threat by Belcher. Before ending his life, Belcher reportedly thanked both men for ‘everything they have done for him.’ “The entire Chiefs family is deeply saddened by today’s events, and our collective hearts are heavy with sympathy, thoughts and prayers for the families and friends affected by this unthinkable tragedy,” team chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said in a written statement. The police believe he killed Kasandra Perkins, who was reportedly his girlfriend, and the mother of his three-month-old daughter. She was shot at a residence, before dying at a local hospital, police said. The first shooting, according to a police spokesman, happened at approx. 7:50 am local time. Then, another call, this time at Arrowhead Stadium, was received at 8:10 am local time. He signed with the Chiefs as an undated free agent in 2009. He played college football with the Maine Black Bears. Belcher spent four seasons with the organization.
