UPDATE from Boston.com: “Junior Seau, a 43-year old 12-time NFL Pro Bowl linebacker, was found dead today in his home, the result of a gunshot wound, police confirmed.

Police are investigating the shooting at the Oceanside, Calif., residence of the former New England Patriot and San Diego Chargers football star as a suicide. Police confirmed that Seau was found by his girlfriend at his beachfront home with a gunshot wound to his chest.

Police received a call at 9:35 a.m. PST from Seau’s girlfriend, who informed police Seau was unconscious with a gunshot wound, before making their way to Seau’s house and performing “life saving” efforts on him in his bedroom, according to police. A handgun was found.”
