Former NBA, UCLA Player Killed In Shootout With Police

When police arrived, Honeycutt shot at police who shot back. It's unclear whether they've been allowed to return home.

Family members identified Honeycutt on Saturday, after reports that the man had been a former basketball player for both UCLA and the NBA, according to ABC 7. The Los Angeles Police Department later stated in a post on Twitter that Honeycutt "appears to have sustained injuries consistent with a self-inflicted gunshot wound". After his time with the Bruins, Honeycutt spent two seasons in the National Basketball Association with the Sacramento Kings.

"No officers were injured during the officer-involved shooting", sergeant Hector Guzman said Friday night, when Honeycutt was believed to be alive based on text messages.

Honeycutt then barricaded himself in his home while officers waited diligently for any sign of self-defeat or retaliation.
