Exactly one year ago the Kansas City Chiefs lost linebacker Jovan Belcher to a murder/suicide. Well yesterday a man died and three people were taken into custody after an altercation that happened Sunday in the parking lot of Arrowhead Stadium as the Kansas City Chiefs played the Denver Broncos.
Kansas City police spokesman Darin Snapp told The Associated Press that the incident was being treated as a homicide but that no arrests had been made. Snapp said the man who died was found inside someone else’s vehicle and a struggle ensued.
The man, who was in his 20s, was found lying unconscious on the pavement, Snapp said. Paramedics began administering first aid before he was transported to a hospital, where he died. His name was not immediately released.
“Talking to several witnesses that were out here in the parking lots, there was an individual who came back to his vehicle, saw someone inside the vehicle that did not belong. A struggle ensued between the two. That’s when the individual (who had been inside the vehicle) collapsed,” Snapp said.
Snapp said the man who had returned to the vehicle had his son with him, and the boy -whose age was not immediately known — ran for help when the struggle began.
Snapp said there were no obvious indications of how the death occurred.
“We don’t know if the person had a health condition, had a heart attack. We don’t know,” Snapp said. “We’re going to investigate this as a homicide until we hear differently. Right now it’s a suspicious death but we are going to investigate it as a homicide.”
People need to stop with the violence after games.
