A developing story out of Kansas City …

Here’s the police lockdown outside Arrowhead Stadium:


Kansas City police is confirming that LB Jovan Belcher is the player involved.

Some Twitter users are more upset about fantasy football implications.

This is nuts, via CBS reporter Jason LaCanfora:

KCTV5 had the story first:

The first shooting was reported about 8 a.m. at a home near 54th Street and Chrysler Avenue. The second shooting was reported a short time later at a Chiefs practice facility located on the Arrowhead facility.

Officials said the Chiefs player shot and killed his girlfriend and then drove to the practice facility where he shot and killed himself.

It’s unknown if people were at Arrowhead or any of its surrounding facilities at the time.

ESPN is reporting that the NFL advised the Carolina Panthers to plan to travel to KC for their game tomorrow against the Chiefs.
