Kansas City Chiefs Player Shoots Girlfriend, Then Commits Suicide

A 25-year-old Kansas City Chiefs player shot his girlfriend, and then fatally shot himself early Saturday at the team's training facility near Arrowhead Stadium, reports the Associated Press.

Police spokesman Darin Snapp says authorities received a call Saturday morning from a woman who said her daughter had been shot multiple times at a residence about 5 miles away from the Arrowhead complex, reports AP.

The player has been identified as Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher.

The Chiefs hosted the Carolina Panthers Sunday afternoon. Before kickoff, fans at Arrowhead Stadium observed a moment of silence for the victims of domestic violence and their families.
