DENVER (AP) -- The N-F-L calls the shooting death of Broncos
cornerback Darrent Williams "a terrible tragedy." Williams was killed in a drive-by shooting in downtown Denver.
Early this morning, a vehicle pulled up alongside the white Hummer
limousine he was in, and opened fire. Three people in the limo were
hit. A man and woman who were injured have not been identified.
Police are looking for witnesses and suspects.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said officials "don't know all the details yet," but that the league is "reaching out to the Broncos" to offer support.
His high school football coach said Williams "had great compassion" and "wanted to try to make sure people did the right thing. He wanted to be a good parent, a good father, a good example for his kids."
The 24-year-old Williams has two young children in the Fort Worth, Texas, area.
Williams was second on the team with four interceptions and tied
for third with 86 tackles.
Hours before the shooting, the Broncos lost to San Francisco 26-to-23 in overtime, eliminating Denver from the playoff race.
Williams was a 4-year letterman for Oklahoma State University.
