KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Police said Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, 25, fatally shot his girlfriend early Saturday, then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and committed suicide in front of his coach and general manager, police said.

Police spokesman Darin Snapp confirmed it was Belcher, a fourth-year player from West Babylon, who played college ball at Maine. The woman’s name has not yet been released.

Snapp said Belcher shot the woman at a Kansas City residence, then drove to the Chiefs facility. Belcher thanked Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli and Romeo Crennel for all they had done for him, then shot himself, police said.

The Kansas City Star reported on its website, Kansascity.com, that police Capt. David Lindaman said Belcher and his girlfriend, 22, got into an argument about 7 a.m. at their home in the 5400 block of Chrysler Avenue in Kansas City. About 7:50 a.m., Belcher shot his girlfriend multiple times, according to the website. She was then taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Lindaman said Belcher’s mother, who was visiting the couple and their 3-month-old daughter, witnessed the shooting and was being interviewed by police.

Belcher then left the scene and went to the Chiefs’ practice facility near Arrowhead Stadium, police said. The Star reported that police were called to the stadium about 8:10 a.m. When Belcher arrived at the facility, he encountered general manager Scott Pioli, coach Romeo Crennel and other team personnel. Police said Chiefs staff attempted to keep Belcher from committing further violence. When police arrived, they heard a gunshot and saw that Belcher had shot himself in the head.
