RTR3SYNA

Former UCLA Bruins and Sacramento Kings basketball player Tyler Honeycutt is dead of apparent suicide following a police standoff, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly. Authorities did not report his cause of death. Police reported Honeycutt then barricaded himself inside a residence for hours.

While no officers were hurt, at least one of them discharged a weapon, according to the Police Department. Cops returned fire and the man barricaded himself inside.

The LAPD responded to a call Friday night about a man with a gun outside of a residence and, upon arrival, the suspect shot at them, said LAPD spokesperson Tony Im. The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the scene and pronounced the male dead.

The account gave another update early Saturday afternoon, reporting that Honeycutt's gunshot wound appeared to be self-inflicted. No officers were injured and it's unknown if the suspect was struck.

Honeycutt was first team All-Pac-10 in 2011 and was selected 35th overall by the Kings in the 2011 NBA Draft. In the National Basketball Association, he had registered 24 games with the Sacramento Kings.




He spent a season playing for the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers before moving overseas to play for the Ironi Nes Ziona team in the Israeli Super League.

Honeycutt, a standout high school star in California, most recently played for Russia's Khimki in the 2017-18 season.

The confirmation of the tragic news arrived by Aaron Mintz, Honeycutt's agent, via Khimki Moscow, the team with which the American forward last played.

Rest in Peace, Tyler.
