On Saturday morning, 25 year-old Jovan Belcher, who played for the Kansas City Chief, committed suicide at the Arrowhead practice facility after shooting his longtime girlfriend Kasandra Perkins with shotgun at their home, according to the associated press.
The team’s spokesperson then quickly released a statement, saying:
“We can confirm that there was an incident at Arrowhead earlier this morning. We are cooperating with authorities in their investigation.”
And according to police reports:
“Authorities received a call Saturday morning from a woman who said her daughter had been shot multiple times at a residence about five miles away from the Arrowhead complex. Snapp said a call was then received from the Chiefs’ practice facility. Upon arriving, Snapp said that police witnessed a black male in a car with a handgun to his head talking to two Chiefs officials. That’s when police heard a gunshot.”
So far, there is no reports on what started the argument between the former couple.
According to theJasminebrand, the argument was triggered over a Trey Songz concert:
A friend of the woman killed today by Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher said the couple argued in the early morning hours after the woman was out late attending Friday’s Trey Songz concert at The Midland. The friend, who asked not to be identified, said Belcher confronted his girlfriend when she returned home about 1 a.m. The couple had dated about three years and argued frequently, the friend said, but she wasn’t aware of any prior physical abuse.
