Jovan Belcher, Kansas City Chiefs Player, Kills Girlfriend, Then Himself

by at . Comments

Jovan Belcher, a linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs, was at the center of a horrific tragedy this morning.

According to local authorities, Belcher, 25, shot and killed his on-again/off-again girlfriend (Kasandra Perkins, who gave birth to the couple's first child three months ago) in her home around 8 a.m. and then drove to the Arrowhead Stadium complex where the Chiefs play home games.

In front of team personnel (including GM Scott Piloi and Coach Romeo Crennel) who tried to calm him down in the parking lot, Belcher then shot himself in the head.

Police spokesman Darin Snapp says authorities received a 911 call from the mother of Belcher's victim, alerting them to the incident at her daughter's residence.

Another call was then placed minutes later from the Kansas City facility.

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

It's unclear at the moment if the team's game tomorrow against the Carolina Panthers will be played as scheduled. We send our thoughts to the loved ones of all involved in this tragedy.

I hope Hugh Hefner and his hooker read this, before they start their relationship again. Blacks are more violent than whites, but still, there are always exceptions.

"Blacks are more violent than whites."
How many serial killers in the United States were white?
I'm white- from Spain, by the way.
To just generalize people that way is stupid.

What a tragic situation! He really must have snapped to go to this extreme level. There was no thinking to take the life of his girlfriend and leave a baby with no parent! Many prayers to all of you!! God bless.

Are u serious!? Blacks are more violent than whites!? Geez....how about this...whites have sex with little kids more often than blacks. There are more white serial killers than black. Whites especially white men are more prone to suicide than blacks. Whites usually white men are more prone to starting wars...I could keep going but you get the idea...
