Euroleague Basketball mourns Tyler Honeycutt

Armed, barricaded suspect may be former NBA, UCLA basketball star: report

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.

- LAPD HQ (@LAPDHQ) July 7, 2018UPDATE: SWAT entered the residence & located an unresponsive male.

This morning, it was confirmed that the suspect, who had barricaded himself inside the home, was found dead.

USA media report this was Honeycutt's residence in the Sherman Oaks area of Los Angeles.

He allegedly barricaded himself in a Sherman Oaks residence, and Honeycutt's mother called police to say he was acting erratically.

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.

When police arrived, Honeycutt shot at police who shot back. LAPD later announced Honeycutt had died from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. No one was injured in the initial shooting.

The fire department responded to the incident, the department said, and pronounced the suspect dead.

In 2013 he left the USA to play for Israeli team Ironi Nes Ziona, followed by BC Khimki in 2014.

Honeycutt was named to the All-Pac 10 first team as a sophomore at UCLA then declared for the 2011 draft. 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.

He played brief spells for the Reno Bighorns before moving to the Houston Rockets.

The victim was identified as 27-year-old Tyler Honeycutt, according to TMZ. He also had stints with Israeli team Ironi Nahariya and in Turkey with Anadolu Efes.
