Tyler Honeycutt, who played for UCLA and the Sacramento Kings, died Friday after an exchange of gunfire with Los Angeles Police, KABC reported.
Police said they responded to a report of a man with a gun, and were shot at from inside a residence. Officers returned fire and crisis negotiators were called in, but when the SWAT team entered the home found Honeycutt dead of what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. No officers were injured.
Honeycutt played for UCLA from 2009-11 and was a second-round pick by the Kings in 2011, playing in 24 NBA games. He was 27.
