Reports: Junior Seau commits suicide

Junior Seau was selected to the Pro Bowl 12 times during his career.

Former NFL star Junior Seau was found dead Wednesday at his home near San Diego, TMZ reported, citing multiple law enforcement sources.

The report could not immediately be confirmed.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that police responded to reports of a shooting at Seau’s Oceanside, Calif., home. A 911 call reporting a possible suicide was made to police at 10 a.m. local time, a dispatcher said, according to the paper.

The North County Times reported the 43-year-old Seau was found dead by a housekeeper with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to his chest.

The 12-time Pro Bowl linebacker played for the San Diego Chargers, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots from 1990-2009.

“We don’t have any information right now on the Junior Seau situation,” the Chargers wrote on Twitter. “We pray he’s ok.”
