During the tense standoff between Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel and Jovan Belcher in the team facility parking lot on December 1st, Crennel begged Belcher to put the gun down and not kill himself.

“You’re taking the easy way out,” coach Romeo Crennel said to Jovan Belcher during the heated standoff.

The Kansas City PD just released new documents from the murder/suicide investigation, further detailing the events which entailed on that fateful morning.

Belcher had driven to the Chiefs practice facility after shooting the mother of his child, Kasandra Perkins, at their home.

While carrying a handgun, Jovan Belcher had a conversation with Chiefs GM Scott Pioli in the parking lot.

“I’m sorry Scott, I’ve done a bad thing to my girlfriend already,” Belcher allegedly told Pioli. “I want to talk with Gibbs and Romeo.”

Belcher complained about not getting the psychiatric hel he needed.

“You know that I’ve been having some major problems at home and with my girlfriend. I need help! I wasn’t able to get enough help. I appreciate everything you all have done for me with trying to help … but it wasn’t enough. I have hurt my girl already and I can’t go back now.”

Crennel told police that Jovan Belche lowered the gun to load a round in the chamber, then he crossed his heart and proceeded to fire a single shot into his head, killing himself.

Truly a sad case of a player reaching out too late for the help he needed.
