The Police arrived at Honeycutt’s house after they received a phone call from his mother. She called to report his strange and aggressive behavior. When they arrived, Tyler immediately opened fire, which further led to a special force team being called. When they finally breached the house, he was found dead inside. It is still uncertain whether the basketball player shot himself or if the police did it.
