Person Dead After Police Exchanged Gunfire With Suspect at Sherman Oaks Home: LAPD

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

The man's mother made the call after her son displayed erratic behavior. Police said no officers were injured in the incident and it was not immediately clear if the suspect was hit by gunfire.

According to KTLA 5 Los Angeles local news, officers spoke with the suspect in person and through a cellphone while attempting to get him to surrender.

Crisis negotiators and the SWAT team were deployed to the scene and several residences were evacuated in the area as a precaution, according to ESPN.

Although officers could not communicate with the man after the shooting, they believe the man is still alive, the report said. The responding police returned fire, which led to a standoff that bled into the early hours of Saturday. Once inside they found Honeycutt completely unresponsive with what appeared to be self-inflicted gunshot wounds. "Investigators from our Force Investigation Division are at the scene conducting a thorough investigation and we will provide more details as they become available". He attended Sylmar High School in Sylmar, California.

Basketball star Tyler Honeycutt has been found dead after reportedly exchanging gunfire with police. He then declared for the National Basketball Association draft and was selected by Sacramento in the second round (35th overall pick) in 2011. The next day, he was assigned to the Reno Bighorns of the National Basketball Association D-League.

The Kings traded Honeycutt to the Houston Rockets in 2013.

He had been playing overseas since 2013. He spent time with EuroCup team BC Khimki (2014-15) and EuroLeague's Khimki Moscow Region (2015-16, 17-18) and Anadolu Efes (2016-17).
