KC Chefs baller Jovan Belcher this morning killed his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins, then drove himself to the stadium and committed suicide in front of team coaches and managers. Kansas police said that it all started with an argument between the two around 7am, which ended with Jovan shooting his girlfriend multiple times. After that he left the scene and drove to the stadium, where he was confronted by the team personnel including the team head coach Romeo Crennel and manager Scott Pioli, who reportedly tried to stop him from committing any further acts of violence. Police said that they heard a gunshot as soon as they arrived at the scene. They then found out that Jovan fired that shot to his head. He had thanked Pioli and Crennel before firing the shot. Jovan’s neighbours were shocked by the tragedy. Freddie Sinclair, who lives next door to the site of the murder on the 5400 block of Crysler Avenue told FOXSports.com that ‘there have never been any issues in the past’. His family also confirmed that Jovan and Kassandra have always been happy together, even after the birth of their child three months ago. KC Chiefs Chairman & CEO Clark Hunt has released a statement:
The entire Chiefs family is deeply saddened by today’s events, and our collective hearts are heavy with sympathy, thoughts and prayers for the families and friends affected by this unthinkable tragedy. We sincerely appreciate the expressions of sympathy and support we have received from so many in the Kansas City and NFL communities, and ask for continued prayers for the loved ones of those impacted.
Jovan Belcher started playing for KC Chiefs in 2009 as an undrafted free agent out of Maine. He was regarded as a hardworking player. [Photos: Instagram/Daily Mail, Getty]
