    ***Unconfirmed*** - read on another website that he did it in the locker room in front of Pioli and Crennel.

    I wonder if the Chiefs will even play tomorrow. Can they forfeit?

    Just saw a report that he killed his girlfriend before killing himself.

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...whead/1738971/

    11:48AM EST December 1. 2012 - Police are investigating two shootings Saturday morning, involving a Kansas City Chiefs player and his girlfriend. Local Kansas City TV station KCTV 5 reports that the 25-year-old Chiefs player committed suicide outside the team's practice facility after killing his girlfriend.

    Here are more details, from the AP:

    Kansas City police Supervisor Andrea Khan could not release the name of the player involved. The condition of the two parties was not immediately known.

    Khan said the first shooting happened in a Kansas City, Mo., neighborhood and the second happened at Arrowhead Stadium, about five miles away, at about 8 a.m. Saturday.

    The Chiefs have released the following statement:

    "We can confirm that there was an incident at Arrowhead earlier this morning. We are cooperating with authorities in their investigation."

    The incident was first reported by FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, who tweeted that"players are being told to go Stadium for team meeting on what has gone down but more details I'm getting, not a good situation."

    The Chiefs are scheduled to host the Panthers at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday. The Charlotte Observer's Joe Person tweeted that the NFL has has advised the Panthers to travel as planned.

    Belcher was a four-year veteran, and had started 44 of the team's 59 games during that span. His player bio is here.

    Update, 11:20 a.m.: Belcher may have committed suicide in front of Romeo Crennel and Scott Pioli:

    Update, 11:47 a.m.: Recent pictures of Belcher, his girlfriend and their child, uploaded to this Facebook page. The caption reads, "Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours."

    There is also a Walmart baby registry for Kasandra Perkins & Jovan Belcher, set for 9/11/2012, here. The police have yet to name the first victim.
