Former San Diego Chargers linebacker Junior Seau was found shot to death at his home Wednesday in what police are investigating as a possible suicide. He was 43.
“We believe it was a suicide,” said Oceanside Police Lt. Leonard Mata. “There is no indication of foul play.”
According to Oceanside Police Chief Frank McCoy, a woman, who indicated she was Seau’s girlfriend, called police at about 9:35 a.m. to report she had returned home and found Seau unconscious in a bedroom suffering from a gunshot wound.
The Oceanside Police Department and Fire Department responded to the residence, where they located Seau in one of the bedrooms. A handgun was found near the body.
