Developing story: According to TMZ Police are on scene at Junior Seau’s house where there was reportedly a shooting.  Police are reportedly telling people on scene that Junior Seau is in fact dead.  No confirmation yet.

This would be a truly sad day for Chargers fans, and the NFL as a whole.  Junior Seau, a former San Diego Charger, New England Patriot and Miami Dolphin,  was an electrifying player.  Seau was one of the best linebackers to play the game of football going to 12 Pro Bowls and being selected as an All pro 10 times.

Thoughts and prayers go out to the Seau Family and the Charger community.  I will be adding updates as I get them.

Update 1: http://www.tmz.com/2012/05/02/junior-seau-dead/    TMZ is now confirming that Junior Seau is dead in an apparent suicide. They have sources that say Seau texted his ex wife and 3 children yesterday saying “I love you.”

This sad event just got even more tragic with the suicide report.  This is truly becoming more terrible by the minute.

Update 2: Tweet from North County Times Chargers reporter Scott Bair: “Our north county times news reporters are reporting that, according to a source, junior seau has committed suicide.”

This now a second report confirming suicide.  This is looking worse and worse.

Update 3: North County Times has now put out an article again reporting it as a suicide.   http://www.nctimes.com/news/local/oceanside/article_bccb943a-ba7e-56f3-8756-13d9c81a8258.html
