“I know it had nothing to do with the actual game itself.  Everything happened out here in the parking lot,” KCPD Public Safety Officer Darin Snapp told FOX 4.  “The hospital has told us that there were no obvious signs of how the person passed away so, we don’t know. The witnesses say that there were no guns or anything.”

Chief Forte added that multiple parties were being interviewed at police headquarters.  According to Rice, police took a total of three persons into custody.

The incident occurred on the one-year anniversary of linebacker Jovan Belcher killing his girlfriend and then committing suicide in a parking lot at Arrowhead Stadium.
