Tyler Honeycutt Dead: Basketball Player Was 27

RTR3SYNA

The Los Angeles Police Department stated that an unnamed man died after an apparent "self-inflicted gunshot", following a shoot-out with police.

She had reportedly called police saying her son was acting erratically.

Upon making contact with the man, he shot his weapon from inside the home at LAPD officers. Police later confirmed that the suspect appeared to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and was not struck by any gunfire from the officers.

Los Angeles police say they found Honeycutt dead in his home after a standoff in which both sides exchanged gunfire.

United States media report it was the former Sacramento King's player, who was on contract for Moscow's BC Khimki.

Honeycutt, perhaps, is most known for playing basketball for the Bruins for two years, from 2009 until 2011, and played in 2011 for the Sacramento Kings.

Former Kings teammate DeMarcus Cousins was one of several players to mourn Honeycutt's death, tweeting on Saturday: "Prayers up for his family and friends".

Los Angeles police department SWAT officers entered the residence at about 4 a.m. PT on Saturday and found the suspect unresponsive.

Honeycutt, 27, allegedly opened fire at officers and barricaded himself inside the residence Friday night. Honeycutt had been playing overseas since 2013, most recently in Russian Federation with BC Khimki.

After a year-long stint with Turkish team Anadolu Efes SK he returned to BC Khimki in 2017. "Rest in peace, Tyler", it tweeted.

"RIP Tyler Honeycutt", Golden State Warriors player DeMarcus "Boogie" Cousins wrote.
