Neighbors React, Chiefs Win After NFL Murder-Suicide

Just over 24 hours after a murder-suicide stunned the NFL, the game goes on, while a broken neighborhood tries to pick up the pieces.

FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig reports:

Audio clip:

(Johnson) “Pray for the family, and you know, the friends.  And the Chiefs family, as well.”

Gena Johnson remembering her neighbor, Kassandra Perkins, who was shot to death Saturday by linebacker Jovan Belcher, just a few miles from Arrowhead Stadium – where the Chiefs took on the Carolina Panthers Sunday, despite some fans’ wishes.

(Chiefs Fan) “They probably should’ve cancelled.  Yeah, out of respect.”

Belcher took his own life Saturday in front of head coach Romeo Crennel, who was back on the sidelines for the game.

(Crennel) “We were all able to lean on each other a little bit, you know.  And let a little bit out.”

A moment of silence was held for domestic violence victims before the game, which the Chiefs won.
