Sean Taylor’s gunshot wound leads to death as he passed away early this morning:

MIAMI —Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor died early Tuesday, a day after he was shot at home by what police say was an intruder. He was 24. Family friend Richard Sharpstein said Taylor’s father told him the news around 5:30 a.m.

“His father called and said he was with Christ and he cried and thanked me,” said Sharpstein, Taylor’s former lawyer. “It’s a tremendously sad and unnecessary event. He was a wonderful, humble, talented young man, and had a huge life in front of him. Obviously God had other plans.”

He said Taylor died early Tuesday at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, where he had been airlifted after the shooting early Monday.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. R.I.P.

    my thoughts and prayers with this family. It’s sad and it’s really disrespectful of all the jokes i read here about his shooting yesterday. This was a man at his own home, not out in a club or anywhere else. Spending time with his family. He was home because he didnt’ travel with the team due to his injury and was given permission to have it checked out. this is sad. I can’t believe there were people actually making jokes where he got shot.

    a white baseball player died in his home the day after thanksgiving suddenly at 28 years old. he leaves a pregnant wife, and a 1 year old kid. he got up that morning to go the the restroom and just dropped dead. no jokes on the white boards. a 25 year old musician died in his sleep sunday suddenly, married man. no jokes about his death or talking about crime or anything. This man was unarmed and he was in his home protecting his family like any other father would have done. Whoever did this is a coward.

    so sad that we as black people have to put this brother down because where he was shot and the fact he was shot and had problems in his past. This man was not in a club or causing problems. He was at home. He leaves a young child, family and friends and teammates who felt he was a great player. My thoughts and prayers are with those and hopefully one day we will stop seeing death as a joke because death is going to happen to both you, your love ones and all of us. Death is the end. T

    I’m a diehard Skins fan and Sean has been my favorite player. I went to sleep last night hopeful because of the media reports that were coming in. I woke up at 830 this morning only to hear that he passed away and have been in tears ever since. This is such a senseless tragedy. This man was targeted. The telephone lines were cut to his home! I have faith that his father who is the police chief and his staff find the person who took this man from his family and his baby daughter. My heart is truly broken. I am thankful that I have tickets to the game this weekend because I will be surrounded by the fans that loved Sean. It’ll definitely be an emotional day.

    Rest In Peace Sean… May God comfort you on the rest of your journey…..

    As stated before on the other post,

    This hurts so much. Not because the Redskins lost a player but because a mother lost her son, a father lost his son, a girlfriend lost her boyfriend and a child lost her father. Regardless of his celebrity a 24 year old man lost his life because someone wanted to act stupid. Life is far too short to not live it to the fullest. Don’t take anyone or anything for granted.

  • Say What?

    This is truly a sad story. My thoughts and prayers are with his family members.

    It saddens my heart that a young person’s (He was only 24), who had seemed to turn his life around, life would be cut short because of senseless violence.

    PEOPLE!!! Wake UP! It is important that you get your life right with Jesus while you still have the chance. Death is only a breath a way.

    Think About It.

    @ Patience – Death is the end

    I agree with all your points except the above. Death is the end of life on this earth, but death is not anyones ultimate end. The soul lives on. We are all going to die one way or another. But I think your journey does not end just because you are no longer on this earth. Just my view. Anywhoo, his being killed like that is very tragic. It sounds like he had turned his life around. I hope his killer/s are caught soon. It seems this was more like a hit than a robbery, I just hope justice is served for him and his family.

    RIP – Sean Taylor

    Something about that story sounds fishy to me. I wonder what the investigation will reveal.
