(BlackMediaScoop) An argument after a Trey Songz concert may have led to Kansas City Chiefs player Jovan Belcher to commit suicide at the team’s training facility on Saturday, approximately an hour after shooting his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins dead.

The 25 year old NFL player, fatally shot his 22 year old girlfriend Perkins early Saturday, then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and committed suicide in front of his coach and general manager after first thanking them for everything they had done for him, police said.

 According to a new report, the couple argued after Kasandra returned home late following a Trey Songz concert.

“Jovan and Kasandra were frequently seen arguing over the course of their relationship,” a friend told the Kansas City Star. However, she had no reason to believe their fights had ever become violent.

On Friday night, Nov. 30, the friend added, “Jovan confronted Kasandra when she came home after watching R&B star Trey Songz perform in Kansas City.”

Kansas City police spokeswoman Darin Snapp told NFL.com.

“About (7:50 a.m), we got a call to a residence, in regards to a shooting, on the 5400 block of Crysler Ave,” Darin said. “We arrived and the lady there informed us that her daughter had been shot by her on-again, off-again boyfriend. The young woman was taken to a local hospital, where she died a short time later.”

 

“At about 8:10 a.m., we received a call to the Arrowhead practice facility in regards to a black male armed with a gun in the parking lot, and he matched the description of the shooting suspect,” Darin continued. “Officers arrived, saw a black man with a gun to his head, and some Chiefs employees. As the officer got out of his car, he heard a gunshot. It appeared the individual shot himself. He was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.”

Before turning the gun on himself, Belcher thanked Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli and Romeo Crennel for all they had done for him, police spokesman Darin Snapp said.

Belcher was a 25-year-old native of West Babylon, N.Y., on Long Island, played college ball at Maine. He had played all four of his NFL seasons for the Chiefs and played in every game each year, including the 11 so far this season.

 Jovan and girlfriend Kasandra Perkins had a baby less than three months ago, on Sept 11.

 The coaches say they never felt in any danger, Snapp said.

“They said the player was actually thanking them for everything they’d done for him,” he said. “They were just talking to him and he was thanking them and everything. That’s when he walked away and shot himself.”
