Jeff Curry-US PRESSWIRE
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Kansas City linebacker Jovan Belcher confronted Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel and GM Scott Pioli in the parking lot of Arrowhead Stadium before shooting himself, ending his life.
From La Canfora, via Twitter:
"KCPD Officer Darin Snapp confirms GM Scott Pioli and Coach Romeo Crennel were outside team facility at the time Chiefs player killed himself"
"KCPD say the player thanked both men before taking his life, and that Pioli and Crennel did not feel threatened. KCPD not revealing identity"
As of right now we are hearing that the NFL has told the Carolina Panthers to continue their scheduled travel plans to Kansas City. Football is obviously secondary at this point. It is hard to imagine the game actually being played. Hopefully the the NFL will come to their senses and postpone the game or cancel it all together.
