Linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs, Jovan Belcher repeatedly shot his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins multiple times, killing her, then went to the Chiefs training facility and turned the gun on himself.
According to a friend of Kasandra Perkins, 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 Perkins when she returned home about 1 a.m.
According to police, at about 7:50 a.m., Belcher shot the victim multiple times. The victim was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Belcher left the scene and went to the Chiefs’ headquarters, police said, encountering general manager Scott Pioli, head coach Romeo Crennel and other team personnel at the Arrowhead Stadium facility. Police were summoned to the stadium at about 8:10 a.m.
It was there, police say, that Chiefs personnel worked to keep Belcher from committing additional acts of violence, to no avail. As police arrived, they heard a gunshot
“The coaches said when (the police) pulled up (that) they were never in danger,” Darin Snapp, a public information officer at the Kansas City Police Department, told reporters outside Arrowhead. “He never threatened them. They talked for a little bit.”
