Former UCLA player Tyler Honeycutt found dead after shootout with police

Tyler Honeycutt - a former UCLA hoops standout and Sacramento King - was found dead early Saturday morning after a police shootout and standoff at his L.A. area home. It was unclear whether Honeycutt shot himself or was shot by police. Approximately 30 residents were evacuated during the incident.

Honeycutt's mother had called the police because her son was acting erratically, ABC 7 reported.

His team confirmed his death on Twitter after speaking with his agent. A lieutenant with the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office declined comment to Yahoo Sports on Saturday morning and said he could not yet release the name of the deceased. When officers arrived, the man opened fire at the officers, who returned fire. The suspect died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Im said.

After being waived by the Rockets, Honeycutt went to Europe, where he most recently played with BC Khimki in Russian Federation. No one was injured in the initial shooting.

Honeycutt played college basketball for the Bruins from 2009 to 2011 and was drafted in the second round of the NBA draft in 2011 by the Sacramento Kings. He went to the Kings in 2011 National Basketball Association draft, but only played 24 National Basketball Association games before continuing his career overseas.

The victim was identified as 27-year-old Tyler Honeycutt, according to TMZ. Euroleague Basketball offers its condolences to Mr. Honeycutt's family, friends, teammates, coaches and the many fans who enjoyed his performances with both Khimki and Anadolu Efes Istanbul. He never played for the Rockets, and in August, 2013, he moved his playing career overseas, starting with Ironi Nes Ziona in Israel.
