KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Police say a 25-year-old Kansas City Chiefs player was involved in two shootings Saturday, one of which occurred in the parking lot near Arrowhead Stadium.
KCTV-5 reports that the player in question shot his girlfriend dead before killing himself. ESPN has also confirmed that the player is dead and that “police are operating with the belief the player fatally shot his girlfriend at a house before driving to Arrowhead Stadium and killing himself.”
