Junior Seau Dies; Police Press Conference Expected Soon

Former San Diego Chargers linebacker Junior Seau is dead, according to a number of reports. Seau, 43, died of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to reports. No other official information is available.

Police are expected to hold a press conference to share any details, according to TMZ.com.

TMZ reports that a number of people, including fans, have started showing up at his house after the news broke. TMZ reported that the scene at Seau's house was "hysterical" as friends and family began to arrive at the house.

Seau leaves behind three children.

The Chargers selected Seau in the 1st round of the 1990 NFL Draft and it was one of the best decisions the franchise has ever made. Seau went on to play 13 years in San Diego, and 20 years in the NFL overall.
