    Chiefs' Javon Belcher commits suicide at team facility

    It's all over the net. NFL.com, fox, espn, cbs sports etc etc.

    Apparently it's Jovan Belcher.

    Way to blatantly sensationalize. He shot himself at practice? Im hearing he shot himself in the parking lot at 8am this morning, not long after killing his girlfriend 5 miles away.

    As if this season couldn't get any worse for the Chiefs...

    Doesn't matter who or what the deal surrounding it is, it's sad.

    Get ready for the influx of questions if the violence of the game of football played any part in this. specifically concussions. I am sure it's already being tossed out there among all the speculation.

    He was 25 and probably too young for concussions to be a factor. My heart breaks for his infant kid...

    I thought that too but with the way the league has been under fire over them I am sure it will be looked into in some way. He could have had plenty in high school and college. Who knows, just sad overall.

    I feel really bad for Crennel and and the GM having witnessed him do it. I don't think I would ever be the same if I saw that.

    Only person I feel bad for is the victim, not the player.

    It wasn't at practice. Teams don't practice the day before games.
    Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher and a woman believed to be his girlfriend are dead, after Belcher apparently shot and killed her, then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and shot and killed himself.

    A statement released by the Chiefs said only, “We can confirm that there was an incident at Arrowhead earlier this morning. We are cooperating with authorities in their investigation.” But PFT has confirmed with multiple sources that it was, in fact, Belcher who was involved in the incident.

    The Kansas City Star reports that the shooting involved a player who shot his girlfriend at around 8 a.m. on Saturday at a home in Kansas City and then left the scene and committed suicide at the team’s facility at Arrowhead a short time later.

    Players on the Chiefs are gathering at Arrowhead Stadium today and being told of the situation. The Chiefs are scheduled to host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium. The Panthers’ team flight has not yet left for Kansas City, and the NFL has not yet said whether the game will go on as scheduled.

    The 25-year-old Belcher entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Maine and quickly made an impact, becoming a starter during his rookie season. Belcher’s off-field life had remained relatively quiet, and the news of this morning is stunning to the NFL world.
