Jovan Belcher, Kansas City Chiefs American football player, has shot himself dead in front of his team officials minutes after he reportedly killed his girlfriend.
According to police, Belcher, 25, drove to a training facility at Arrowhead Stadium after murdering Kasandra Perkins and then killed himself in the car park.
