A Chiefs player shot and killed himself in front of the head coach and general manager after allegedly killing his girlfriend Saturday morning.
The shootings involved linebacker Jovan Belcher and his girlfriend, now identified as 22-year-old Kasandra Perkins. Perkins and Belcher had a 3-month-old daughter together.
When police arrived at the home, a woman came out of the house and told them her daughter had been shot several times by her boyfriend. Despite calling Perkins her daughter, the woman was actually Belcher’s mother. Police said the Chiefs player was renting the home on Crysler Avenue.
Police said Perkins was taken to the hospital where she died.
Officials said Belcher, 25, shot and killed his girlfriend and then drove to the practice facility, where he shot and killed himself. Belcher approached Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli and head coach Romeo Crennel outside of the practice facility, thanked them for all they had done for him and shot himself in the head as police arrived.
While Officer Darin Snapp didn’t confirm what was believed to have led up to the shooting, he did say Belcher and his girlfriend had been known to argue in the past and had argued the morning of the shooting.
Friends of Perkins said the argument that led up to the shooting may have been centered around a Trey Songz concert. Perkins allegedly went to the performer’s show Friday night at the Midland Theatre and stayed out later than Belcher would have liked. When she returned, the two started arguing.
