Apparently Chiefs coaches tried to stop him but the player put a gun to his head and shot himself. He also shot his girlfriend before committing suicide.

Saw that early this morning. It was puzzling in the first report but at the end of it the report said it was related to an earlier shooting.

Then the light went on for me and it turned out to be correct. He had earlier shot and killed his girlfriend then went to the facility and shot himself. The player is still unknown until his family is notified it said but that should be out very soon now.

Offed himself right in front of Crennel and Pioli. Wow. Gonna be hard for them to go forward with the next game, I would think...

This is unreal. Please, for God's sake, if you have issues, GET HELP!!! Everyone would have understood had he taken time off to get help. But this.....

Agree. Another case of a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Prayers to the girlfriend, her family and the player's family.

The saddest part of the murder-suicide is that the couple had a child together. God bless that kid especially.

Even though Belcher's suicide happened right at Arrowhead Stadium (he apparently shot his girlfriend multiple times elsewhere), it looks like the NFL plans to go ahead and play a game there 24 hours later at that very site.

Dear God, have mercy on that child. Our world is a mess.

PFT said the child is only 3 months old. This is just awful. So sad this child is now an orphan.

Tragedy. So sad. There is such stigma about mental health that keeps people (especially men) from seeking help when needed ... and general ignorance about mental health that symptoms go unrecognized or underappreciated. I work in mental health, know directly the value of professional services. Prayers for all affected in this tragedy.

Some men feel as if they can't live without their love ones (women) but man why, there are others out there that would make you happier .. So sad.

:wft Two NFL suicides at team facilities on the same day???


Browns employee commits suicide at team facility
Posted by Mike Florio on December 2, 2012, 12:43 PM EST

At about the same time Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher committed suicide in the presence of team officials in Kansas City, the Browns encountered a similar tragedy.

Jay Glazer of FOX reports that a Browns employee was found hanged in the team’s equipment shed on Saturday morning.

The coaches and players, per Glazer, already had left for Oakland, so none of them were involved in finding the employee.

We extend our condolences to the Browns’ organization, and to the family and friends of the employee whose life was lost.
