KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City police say Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher moved behind a vehicle and shot himself in the team parking lot after he saw police arrive.

Police say Belcher shot and killed his 22-year-old girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, at their Kansas City home Saturday before driving to Arrowhead Stadium, where Belcher committed suicide in the practice facility's parking lot.

A police incident report released Monday says police arrived at the couple's home about 7:50 a.m. and found Perkins on the floor of the master bathroom, dead from multiple gunshot wounds.

The report says officers arrived 10 minutes later at Arrowhead Stadium, and when Belcher saw police, he moved behind a vehicle and shot himself in the head.

Police also said that firearms found at Belcher's home were legally registered.
