A Kansas City Chiefs player committed suicide with a gun at the team's training facility Saturday morning following a related shooting away from the stadium, NFL.com reported, citing police information.
The player, who wasn't identified, died of the self-inflicted gunshot wound near Arrowhead Stadium, according to the report.
The suicide was linked to an earlier, off-site shooting, a Kansas City police spokeswoman told the NFL.
The Chiefs confirmed an incident at Arrowhead. "We are cooperating with authorities in their investigation," a team statement said.
The Chiefs are scheduled to play at home against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
