Police are investigating two shootings Saturday morning, involving a Kansas City Chiefs player and his girlfriend. Kansas City police Supervisor Andrea Khan could not release the name of the player involved.
Details are still unclear, but KCTV5 reports that shooting was reported at approximately 8am at a home near 54th Street and Chrysler Avenue, and a second shooting was reported a short time later at a Chiefs practice facility located on the Arrowhead facility.
Officials said the Chiefs player shot and killed his girlfriend and then drove to the practice facility where he shot and killed himself.
The Chiefs have released the following statement:
“We can confirm that there was an incident at Arrowhead earlier this morning. We are cooperating with authorities in their investigation.”
Speculation on Twitter continues this morning with several tweets that the dead Chiefs player is Jovan Belcher. Police have not confirmed this information.
