The Kansas City Chiefs are dealing with a very difficult situation this afternoon following the suicide of one of their teammates, Jovan Belcher, in the parking lot at Arrowhead Stadium. Belcher took his life in front of GM Scott Pioli and head coach Romeo Crennel after murdering his girlfriend at their home.
Many of the players have sent out tweets expressing their feelings on the incident:
