Jovan Belcher Update: Police release 911 calls in NFL player's murder-suicide
(CBS/AP) KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Police have released audio of the communications between first responders during the apparent murder-suicide committed by Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher.
According to an incident report released Monday, officers were called to the Kansas City home of 25-year-old Belcher and his girlfriend, 22-year-old Kasandra M. Perkins, at about 7:50 a.m. Saturday. Police found Perkins on the floor of the master bathroom, and the report said she died from apparent gunshot wounds, but did not say how many times she had been shot.
Belcher then drove about five miles to Arrowhead Stadium. There, he was met by general manager Scott Pioli and coach Romeo Crennel, and Belcher thanked them for all they'd done for him.
The police report said that when officers arrived at Arrowhead about 8 a.m. they saw several people in the parking lot outside the entrance to the practice facility.
"As they approached, a subject later identified as Jovan Belcher, observed their presence and moved to an area behind a vehicle," the report said. "From that position Belcher shot himself one time in the head."
Belcher was taken to a hospital where he died, according to the report.
