Former UCLA basketball star found dead after police shootout

Former UCLA basketball star found dead after police shootout

The barricade began about 5 p.m. Friday, when police received a call from the suspect's mother, who said her son was acting erratically.

New Orleans Pelicans small forward Solomon Hill, among others, reacted to Honeycutt's death on Twitter. When the police arrived, the suspect apparently fired at the police, who then returned fire.

No officers were injured in the shooting.

At 3:43 a.m. on Saturday, the agency tweeted that SWAT officers entered the home and found an unresponsive male who was pronounced dead at the scene. Police reported Honeycutt then barricaded himself inside a residence for hours. At least 30 residents surrounding the home were evacuated as a precaution. Police later confirmed that the suspect appeared to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and was not struck by any gunfire from the officers.

The attack resulted in the most victims in a single incident in Boise Police Department history, the police chief said. The suspect had been staying with an acquaintance at the complex - but was kicked out on Friday due to bad behaviour.

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. Los Angeles Fire Department officials declared him dead at the scene. Escoto explained that Honeycutt had been playing basketball in Russian Federation and was struggling to adapt to life there.

Honeycutt played for UCLA from 2009 to 2011. He was taken by the Kings 35th overall and played two seasons in Sacramento before being traded to the Rockets in February 2013. Honeycutt was only 27.

Starting his career at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Honeycutt was drafted by the Sacramento Kings in 2011. He also had stints with Israeli team Ironi Nahariya and in Turkey with Anadolu Efes.
