NFL Hall-of-Famer Junior Seau had been found shot to death on Wednesday morning at his home in what cops claimed appeared to be a suicide. He was 43-years-old.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, “Police Chief Frank McCoy said Seau’s girlfriend reported finding him unconscious with a gunshot wound to the chest and lifesaving efforts were unsuccessful. A gun was found near him, McCoy said. Seau’s mother appeared before reporters, weeping uncontrollably.”

Luisa Seau cried and revealed that her son gave no indication of any problems when she spoke to him earlier this week. She said, “I don’t understand … I’m shocked. He’s joking to me, he called me a ‘homegirl.’”

According to the Houston Chronicle, “Seau was a standout linebacker with the University of Southern California before going to the San Diego Chargers – his hometown team – whom he led to the Super Bowl following the 1994 season.”

In a statement, the team said, “everyone at the Chargers is in complete shock and disbelief right now. We ask everyone to stop what they’re doing and send their prayers to Junior and his family.”
