Junior Seau dead at 43 in apparent suicide

OCEANSIDE, California - Former NFL star Junior Seau was found shot to death at his home Wednesday morning in what police said appeared to be a suicide. He was 43.

Police Chief Frank McCoy said Seau’s girlfriend reported finding him unconscious with a gunshot wound to the chest and lifesaving efforts were unsuccessful. A gun was found near him, McCoy said.

Seau was a standout linebacker with the University of Southern California before going to the San Diego Chargers - his hometown team - whom he led to the Super Bowl following the 1994 season.

Seau remained with the Chargers until 2003 and went on to play with the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots before retiring after the 2009 season.
