Washington Redskins Safety Sean Taylor Dies One Day After Shooting

A family friend says Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor has died, a day after he was shot in the leg at his Florida home.

Taylor's former lawyer, Richard Sharpstein, says he got the news
in a call from Taylor's father. Sharpstein calls Taylor's death "a
tremendously sad and unnecessary event."

He says Taylor was a "wonderful, humble, talented young man" with "a huge life in front of him."

    This is a very sad story...I have a feeling there's a part that was left out. This famous man living in a home with little to know protection. How did this individual manage to get in and shoot Sean and made a clean getaway. Chance are, whoever did this already had dealings with Sean. I know it was said a couple of months ago, he had some charges but it was never said what the charges were. Prayer goes out to all.

    This was also crazy and whoever did this deserves to die and rot in you know where.
