Early Saturday morning, KCTV-5 News in Kansas City reported that an unnamed Chiefs player shot and killed his girlfriend in a suburban house 10 minutes away from Arrowhead Stadium.
The player then drove to the Chiefs’ practice facility and tragically took his own life.
While new details are still coming to light, several Cardinals players took to social media to chime in on the unfortunate events.
Sad news from KC. Prayers are with thefamilies and teammates involved.
