A 25-year-old Kansas City Chiefs player fatally shot his girlfriend early Saturday, then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and committed suicide in front of two team officials.

Police spokesman Darin Snapp said the player killed his girlfriend and then went to the team practice facility, where he shot himself.

Snapp did not identify either the player or his victim.

Snapp said that before turning the gun on himself, the player thanked Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli and Romeo Crennel for all they had done for him.
