Default Bronco Cornerback killed

http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/01/01/bro....ap/index.html

DENVER, Colorado (AP) -- Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting in downtown Denver early Monday morning.

Team spokesman Jim Saccomano said police called him about 3 a.m. from the scene of the shooting and told him three people had been shot and that Williams, 24, had been killed.

A little after 2 a.m., a white Hummer limousine was sprayed with bullets from a vehicle that pulled along side, said Sonny Jackson, spokesperson for the Denver Police Department.

Three people in the limousine were hit and were taken to hospitals, where one man was pronounced dead, Jackson said. The other man and woman who were shot were not identified.

Jackson said police were searching for the attackers and interviewing witnesses.

"We have no motive yet," Jackson said. "We're hoping to talk with witnesses to find out where they were coming from, and that might give us some clues."

Saccomano said he spoke with coach Mike Shanahan and others in the organization.

"Complete shock. We're speechless. It takes words away. A terrible tragedy," Saccomano said.

Hours before the shooting, the Broncos lost to San Francisco 26-23 in overtime, eliminating them from the playoff race.

Williams finished the season with 88 tackles, 78 of them solo, and four interceptions.

On Sunday against the 49ers, he had three tackles and returned two punts for 50 yards before leaving the game with a shoulder injury late in the second half.

Williams, a second-round draft pick out of Oklahoma State in 2005, made an immediate impact on the Broncos, starting nine times in his rookie season following a stellar career at Oklahoma State, where he totaled 11 interceptions and scored three touchdowns on punt returns.

Players and coaches are off Monday. They were scheduled to meet Tuesday before heading home for the offseason.


That's such a tragedy. Best of luck to his family and the Broncos organization.

Shocking, is all I can say. ... and after just watching that Broncos game yesterday evening. What a shock for Broncos fan and his family. My condolences.

I remember watching him at the Texans practice facility in training camp '05 when the Broncos were here for joint practice. You could tell then that he had special talent, even though he was a rookie.

He's also Texan for those who didn't know:
(from his bio)

Quote:
HIGH SCHOOL: Williams was a three-time all-district selection at O.D. Wyatt High School in Fort Worth, Texas. He began his high school career at running back before switching to cornerback. As a senior, he was named 7-4A Defensive Most Valuable Player after posting five interceptions that featured several long returns, including a best of 54 yards. He averaged 30 yards per punt return and scored four touchdowns as a returner. Williams missed five games as a junior with a broken middle finger but recovered the following year as the Dallas Morning News tabbed him for its area top-100 list on the gridiron. He also was named an All-American by Track and Field News.

He also has made charitable contributions to little league football teams in Fort Worth and Houston. Williams majored in education at Oklahoma State. The son of Rosiland Williams, Darrent Williams was born Sept. 27, 1982, in Fort Worth, Texas.

I to attended one of those scrimmages between the Texans & Broncos at the
Reliant practice facility back in the summer of 2005.
In one set of Red Zone drills, I was among a large group of spectators standing on the edge
of the EZ and watching Bronco DBs vs. Texan receivers. On one play in particular, saw this little Bronco DB out jump AJ for a pass and tear off downfield with the pic. The little guy made an incredible leap as he gave AJ 'bout half foot, and his quickness was also something to behold.
Anyway, found out this was the deceased so whenever I was watching a
Broncos game and their D was on the field, I always looked for him to make a play.
Incredible athelete and competitor.

This is so terrible. I hope the shooter gets caught and punished. I am at a loss for words to describe how horrible this is.

Indeed.

And sadly I'm sure it was a senseless killing. I'm just in shock.

Denver is my second favorite team behind the Texans. I remember seeing this dude and thinking why does he have his full name on his jersey? He was a good player though. I know it is a cliche to say this, but it puts things into perspective. Football is just a game. This young guy had his whole life ahead of him. On a senseless act of violence, his life was taken. My prayers go out to him and his family.

Unfortunate news to add to it. My sister's best friend dates his cousin and we were told that it was gang-related.
