Bronco's Cornerback Darrent Williams killed

Weird story on the news this morning.

from Yahoo:

Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting in downtown Denver early Monday morning, police said.

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

A little after 4 a.m. EST, a white Hummer limousine was sprayed with bullets from a vehicle that up along its side, said Sonny Jackson, spokesperson for the Denver Police Department.

Interesting sig to go along with that sad news.

What a damn shame this is, how senseless.

Weird, I wonder if it was for him, or the people he was hanging out with and he was just collateral.

> 4 AM, Hummer Limo indicate some lifestyle contribution to the incident. I guess we'll see when more facts come out.

Williams became a starter as a rookie in 2005 and was a much-needed improvement to the Broncos secondary.

Quite possibly. In college, Williams failed a drug test as a freshman, but kept out of trouble after that.

Though for the record, the incident happened sometime after 2 AM local (Mountain) time. Why the article switches to using Eastern time to describe something that happened in Denver, who the hell knows.

Yeah, ESPN said just after 2AM, and they said his group left a nightclub after getting into a dispute with some other patrons. Unknown if he was directly involved or was just collateral damage.

Is 2am really that late for New Years?

Depends on where you are. Especially if you're having "incidents" with other individuals at parties.

I wish I had gotten some "incidents with other individuals" at a party. I did get a free quesadilla, though.
