Former #UCLA star & #NBA player Tyler Honeycutt found dead

Former UCLA and Sacramento Kings basketball player Tyler Honeycutt has died following an exchange of gunfire with Los Angeles police Friday night.
A family member on Saturday confirmed to KABC that Honeycutt had died. The Los Angeles Police Department says it responded Friday afternoon to a report of a man with a gun, and during the initial encounter, the suspect fired a shot out of a residence and officers returned fire. Crisis negotiators were called and a SWAT team found an unresponsive man who was pronounced dead by paramedics. The department, which did not identify the man, says he appears to have died of a self-inflicted gunshot. No officers were injured in the altercation, according to LAPD. Several residents in the area had been evacuated as a precaution. Honeycutt, 27, played for the Bruins from 2009 to 2011. He was a second-round pick by the Kings in the 2011 NBA draft and played in 24 games over two seasons before continuing his professional career overseas.
