  • Armed, barricaded suspect may be former NBA, UCLA basketball star: report

LAPD SWAT officers went into the home and discovered the unidentified man's body early Saturday morning after shots were fired. It's unclear whether they've been allowed to return home.

Honeycutt's agent, Aaron Mintz, confirmed Honeycutt's death to Khimki on Saturday morning. The LAPD says Honeycutt appears to have suffered self-inflicted wounds.

The victim was identified as 27-year-old Tyler Honeycutt, according to TMZ. He played in 24 National Basketball Association games over two seasons. Upon police arrival, Honeycutt opened fire at officers and then barricaded himself inside a residence, per the report.

No officers were injured in the altercation, according to LAPD.

A SWAT team entered the home and located an unresponsive male, who was pronounced dead at the scene, the Los Angeles Police Department tweeted at 3:45 a.m.

The man, said to be in his mid-20s, shot at the officers after his mother called the authorities and said her son was "acting erratically", Los Angeles' KABC-TV reported, citing authorities.

UCLA forward Tyler Honeycutt plays against Oregon State in the first half Saturday, Feb. 12, 2011, at Pauley Pavilion in Westwood.

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

"Investigators from our Force Investigation Division are at scene conducting a thorough investigation and we will provide more details as they become available", the tweet said.

Honeycutt had played with UCLA from 2009-11. He also had stints with Israeli team Ironi Nahariya and in Turkey with Anadolu Efes.
