Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher who played at the University of Maine, this morning shot and killed his girlfriend before going to Arrowhead Stadium and shooting and killing himself.

Police Capt. David Lindaman said Belcher, 25, and his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, 22, got into an argument at their home around 7:50 a.m. , and that is where Belcher shot Perkins multiple times, and she was taken to the hospital where they pronounced her dead. Belcher’s mother, who was visiting the couple and their 3-month-old daughter  witnessed the shooting and she was later on interviewed by police. Belcher left the home and went to Arrowhead Stadium at the practice facility where he ran into Chiefs General Manager Scott Pioli and Head Coach Romeo Crennel, and other team personnel. Scott Pioli is former Director, and Vice President of Player Personnel for the Patriots from 2001 to 2008 and Romeo Crennel was the defensive coordinator for the Patriots for four seasons (2001–2004) under long-time friend Bill Belichick. Police said Belcher thanked Pioli and Crennel for their support and everything they had done for him before taken his on life in the parking lot outside of the practice facility.

Joe Linta the agent for Jovan Belcher is also the agent for Romeo Crennel said about Belcher “never in a million years” did he think Belcher was capable of such violence.” He went on to say “Jovan was a happy, proud father, with pictures of his baby on his Facebook  page. This is shocking. Something went crazy wrong, and we’ll probably never  know what it is.” Read more about this at http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/writers/peter_king/12/01/jovan-belcher/index.html

The Mayer of Kansas City Sly James said on Pioli “he’s very emotional about this.” He also went on to say “I can tell you that you have absolutely no idea of what it’s like to see somebody kill themselves,”If you can take your worst nightmare and then put somebody you know and love into that situation and give them a gun and stand 3 feet away from them and watch them kill themselves, that’s what it’s like. It’s unfathomable. It’s something that you would love to wash away from your mind, but you can’t do it. There’s nothing like it. There’s nothing like it. Think about your worst nightmare and multiply by five.” Read more about this at http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nfl–police–chiefs-cm-scott-pioli-is–very-emotional—after-witnessing-player-kill-himself-192214813.html
