Ex-UCLA Star, NBA Player Tyler Honeycutt Killed After Shootout With LAPD

Tyler Honeycutt, a former National Basketball Association and EuroLeague pro, died in the aftermath of an officer-involved shooting in Los Angeles, ABC7-Los Angeles reported in the early morning hours on July 7.

After a prolonged standoff, SWAT teams entered the house early on Saturday morning and found the suspect "unresponsive".

An officer at the Los Angeles Police Department Van Nuys Division told Yahoo Sports on Saturday morning that because the case is still under investigation, he could not provide further details or confirm the involvement of Honeycutt. Several residents in the area had been evacuated as a precaution.

Authorities received a phone call from the man's mother, who said her son was acting erratically. According to the LAPD official Twitter account, the player shot a gun at the police that also fired back in response. Just a short time ago, CBS-Los Angeles reported that the suspect, Honeycutt, had died from self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was 27 years old.

"No officers were injured during the officer-involved shooting", sergeant Hector Guzman said Friday night, when Honeycutt was believed to be alive based on text messages. At the time of his death, he was playing for the club BC Khimki in Russian Federation. He played just 24 games in the National Basketball Association across two seasons in Sacramento before he was traded in February 2013 to the Houston Rockets, who waived him a month later.

After being waived by the Rockets, Honeycutt went to Europe, where he most recently played with BC Khimki in Russian Federation.

He had been playing overseas since 2013. Mr. Honeycutt moved to Efes in Istanbul for the 2016-17 season before returning to Khimki during the last one.

The site has since removed Honeycutt's name from the report.
