KANSAS CITY, Mo. Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel, one of the last people to see Jovan Belcher alive, said he didn't know what was troubling Belcher at that fateful moment Saturday morning shortly before Belcher took his own life with a single gunshot to the head.
Crennel, who did not specifically address Saturday's events during his press conference after Sunday's win over Carolina, did so Monday.
Crennel acknowledged that he and general manager Scott Pioli encountered Belcher in the parking lot outside the team's practice facility.
Crennel could see that Belcher had a gun with him, but said that he did not know that Belcher had just an hour or so before shot and killed his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, at their home in eastern Kansas City.
"He hadn't told me anything about that," Crennel said. "I didn't know what had happened. All I knew was that there was a player with a gun and I know that's not a good thing."
Crennel added that he had never seen Belcher carry a gun before.
