Tragic news has struck the Kansas City Chiefs organization and the family of the team's second-year long snapper James Winchester. His father, Mike Winchester, 52, was reportedly shot to death at Will Rogers Airport in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on Tuesday.

Winchester was a employee of Southwest Airlines. Local police and airport officials had the airport complex on lockdown following the shooting that occurred at 1 p.m., which caused 25 flights to be canceled. The police later found the suspected shooter dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Authorities declared airport operations resumed as of 6:30 p.m.

James Winchester's agent tweeted his condolences for the loss of his client's father.
