@DannyParkins The player apparently was confronted with #Chiefs coaches in the parking lot before he put the gun to his head and committed suicide.

If this what happened, I feel so sorry for those men. They had to witness that.

The ESPN article noted the NFL told the Carolina Panthers (Chiefs opponent tomorrow) to travel to KC as planned.

Does the NFL seriously expect the Chiefs to be in any condition to play?

This game needs canceled immediately.

I keep hearing on the radio that he killed himself in the presence of the head coach and GM. Just awful. Feel bad for the girlfriend's family as well.

A Kansas City Chiefs player fatally shot himself Saturday morning, according to Kansas City, Mo., police. A team source told CBSSports.com that linebacker Jovan Belcher was involved in a shooting at the Chiefs' practice facility.

Kansas City police supervisor Andrea Khan could not identify the player but said the first shooting happened in a Kansas City, Mo., neighborhood and the second happened at Arrowhead Stadium, about five miles away, at about 8 a.m. Saturday.

The Chiefs are scheduled to host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. Panthers interim general manager said the league has told the team to travel to Kansas City as scheduled, according to the Charlotte Observer.

The Chiefs issued a statement that said, "We can confirm that there was an incident at Arrowhead earlier this morning. We are cooperating with authorities in their investigation."

Since the NFL's not cancelling the game, I think the Chiefs should just forfeit. What the hell.

Apparently they left behind a child. Wasn't enough to take his own life, he had to take both of his child's parents away. Sickening. Feel terrible for Pioli and Crennel as well.

Very sad. Curious to see how the media handles this situation compared to the Chris Benoit incident.

Mental illness is way under appreciated.

How could a Pro Football players life be so horrible that he'd think that this was the only solution?

OMG he's a "local boy" for me. Grew up about 15 minutes from here. I didn't even know that.

I think he may have played with jason Gwaltney and Scooter Berry.

Shame.

Who says it was mental illness? Most likely scenario is he found out she was cheating on him, killed her, went to Arrowhead because it was safe to him but he realized he was going to jail for a long time so he killed himself.

I do find it odd people only care about these things when it's an athlete or actor who does them when these things happen every single day probably several times over.

With all due respect, anyone that commits murder-sucicide is mentally ill.

But that's just MHO

And again, With all due respect, No one is saying that they don't care about the other instances. It's just that a high profile athelete is going to logicaly get more attention (and that's besides the fact that he had so much to lose)
