A player for the Kansas City Chiefs American football team has shot himself dead at the team's main stadium.

US media reports say the unnamed player was involved in an earlier shooting a few miles away, reports the BBC.

He then reportedly went to a training facility at Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium, where he killed himself.

The club confirmed that "an incident" had occurred at Arrowhead on Saturday. "We are co-operating with authorities in their investigation," it added.

Kansas City police spokesman Darin Snapp told AP news agency that authorities were told early on Saturday morning that a woman had been shot, five miles away from the Arrowhead complex.

Police were then called to the training facility, where they saw a black male in a car with a handgun to his head talking to two Chiefs officials.

They then heard a gunshot.
