Authorities in Kansas City are on full-alert as they try to get to the bottom of a terrible tragedy that just took place in the city. At the team facility for the Kansas City Chiefs, personnel are confirming that a player killed himself and a woman on the same morning. Reports say that the man shot his girlfriend at home, killing her. He then drove to Arrowhead stadium in the city, where he killed himself at 8 am.
The player’s name has not been released, but he is believed to be 25-years old.
“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.”
No one else was injured in the shooting and the investigation is still pending. The Chiefs organization has said that they will not release the name of the player until his family has been notified. Players have been brought together at the team’s main facility pending further details. The Chiefs, who are 1 – 10 this season, were set to face off with the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. This appears to be a difficult year for the organization all around.
This is the second shooting involving a football player this week. A player at Morgan State University was also shot and killed outside his dorm.
