  • Authorities said a man fired at police and barricaded himself in a Sherman Oaks Calif. home on Friday

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.

"As they were communicating with the suspect he fired out of the residence and the officers returned fire", LAPD public information officer Josh Rubenstein told Us Weekly.

Police were called to a residence after he was reportedly "acting erratically".

Upon making contact with the man, he shot his weapon from inside the home at LAPD officers.

"While officers could not communicate with the man after the shooting, they believed he was still alive based on text messages". Several residents in the area had been evacuated as a precaution.

The Los Angeles Police Department tweeted on Saturday that SWAT entered the Sherman Oaks, Calif., home and found an unresponsive male. No officers were injured and it's unknown if the suspect was struck.

BC Khimki released a statement on Twitter after Tyler's death, saying, "Players agent, Mr. Aaron Mintz, confirmed the death of Honeycutt".

The account gave another update early Saturday afternoon, reporting that Honeycutt's gunshot wound appeared to be self-inflicted.

Investigators from the department's Force Investigation Division will look into the incident. Honeycutt was only 27.

Demarcus Cousins, who played alongside Tyler for the Kings, tweeted, "RIP Tyler Honeycutt..." The Sacramento Kings drafted him with the 35th pick in the 2011 draft. He played in 24 National Basketball Association games over two seasons.

The Kings traded Honeycutt to the Houston Rockets in 2013. He averaged 9.2 points and 5.4 rebounds in EuroLeague action this past season.
