Javon Belcher, KC Chiefs LB, reportedly shot himself at the stadium. More to follow.

Channel 5 in KC confirms a Chiefs player has committed suicide and killed his girlfriend at the practice facility. Very sad indeed.

Mod note: Remember to keep the politics out of this!

I heard in another report that he turned the gun on 5 teammates but it doesn't seem true. Prayers go out to the family.

Unreal...one would imagine that these guys appreciate their lives and their current position, and understand how blessed they really are. I can't even put it into words. To be one of the coaches standing there as the player turns the gun on himself? Whew. And they have a 2 month old? So many lives affected by one selfish decision

It just puts things into perspective that football is only a game. Nothing is bigger than life itself. Prayers, thoughts, and condolences to those affected, especially the baby.

Prayers for her recovery.

Also being reported, Chiefs have requested the game tomorrow to be post-poned. League has advised Panthers to travel as planned though.

This is an older news feed. The girl has apparently been also confirmed dead, per this feed from 11:28....

Wow..... I don't know what to say, absolutely speechless. Prayers go out to Javon's family and his girlfriend's family.

If the NFL is smart, they would post pone the game and play it Monday or Tuesday.

While I'm not a hard heart, there's no way that happens. You'd have tens of thousands of ticket holders, vendors, team staffs, TV and radio personnel, etc., etc. affected by a change like that. I feel for the families involved, but thats too much to ask of all the other people involved in an NFL game.
