A grand jury indicted former NFL linebacker Khaseem Greene for weapon possession for a December shooting in Elizabeth, New Jersey where Greene is from.

The Kansas City Chiefs released the linebacker on Tuesday. Greene signed with the team in January. His lawyer wasn't immediately available for comment.

NJ.com reports a criminal complaint says Greene was seen on camera handing a gun to another man who fired into a crowd. His co-defendant was charged with aggravated assault, but the extent of the victim's injuries wasn't immediately known.

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon says he plans to restore nearly $5 million in state funding for the Truman Sports Complex and Bartle Hall in Kansas City.
