    Early Saturday morning, 25-year old Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shot and killed his 22-year-old girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, at a house near the team's facility on Saturday morning. The couple had a three-month-old daughter, who is currently safe in the care of a relative.
    Police told the Kansas City Star that Belcher and Perkins got into an argument at approximately 7:00 a.m. Saturday. Belcher shot Perkins multiple times. She was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead there.

    After the shooting, Belcher drove to a location near the team's main campus and took his own life. Members of the team's staff tried to stop Belcher from committing any other acts of violence before the player turned a gun on himself. The Chiefs' Arrowhead practice facility was evacuated and on police lockdown.

    Perkins' mother called police after witnessing the incident and told them that her daughter had been shot. Police arrived at the Chiefs' facility only to find Belcher in the parking lot with a gun to his head. As one officer got out of his car, he heard a gunshot. Belcher was later pronounced dead. Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli and head coach Romeo Crennel were among the team employees in the vicinity. Belcher reportedly thanked Crennel and Pioli for all they had done for him, and then took his own life.

    "Pioli and Crennel and another coach or employee was standing outside and appeared to be talking to him. It appeared they were talking to the suspect," Kansas City police spokesman Darin Snapp said. "The suspect began to walk in the opposite direction of the coaches and the officers and that's when they heard the gunshot.

    "They said the player was actually thanking them for everything they'd done for him. They were just talking to him and he was thanking them and everything. That's when he walked away and shot himself."

    Chiefs players were asked to assemble at the team's main facility so that they can be informed of all the details.
    The Chiefs are scheduled to play the Carolina Panthers at Arrowhead at 1:00 PM ET Sunday, and per Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer, the Panthers have been told by the league to travel to Kansas City as if the game will be played.
    Stay tuned for updates on this developing story.

    The poor mother who saw her daughter get shot. The poor baby who has no parents. May the girlfriend rest in peace. May God have mercy on his soul.
