BEREA, Ohio – A member of the Cleveland Browns’ grounds crew killed himself at the NFL team’s training ground, a team spokesman said Sunday.

The man’s body was found Saturday morning at the facility in suburban Cleveland, the same day Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher committed suicide in front of his coach and general manager after earlier killing his girlfriend.

Browns spokesman Neal Gulkis confirmed to The Associated Press that a team employee died of a suicide, but provided no other details. He released a statement calling the man a good friend and an outstanding employee and saying the team’s heartfelt condolences go out to his family.

“This is a terrible tragedy,” the statement said. “He will be missed by everyone in the Cleveland Browns organization.”
