    DENVER -- Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting in downtown Denver early this morning, police said.

    Police spokesman Sonny Jackson said that a little after 2 a.m. Mountain time, the white Hummer limousine that Williams and two others were travelling in was sprayed with bullets from a vehicle that came up alongside it.

    He said all three people in the limousine were hit and taken to hospital, where Williams was pronounced dead.

    The other victims, a male and a female, were not identified and their conditions are not immediately known.

    Jackson said police continue to search for the suspects and are interviewing witnesses.
    Hours before the shooting, the Broncos lost to San Francisco 26-23 in overtime, eliminating them from the playoff race. In that game, Williams had a sack, a forced fumble, and led the team with seven sacks.

    If you were watching yesterdays game against the 49ers, Darrent had three tackles and returned two punts for 50 yards before leaving the game with a shoulder injury late in the second half. After the game he said he was planning to wait a few weeks before determining if he needed an operation.

    Hmmm

    Local news is saying that it was NOT a random shooting.
    Opinions expressed by me, are mine, based on life experience, and known facts of any given case.

    This is heartbreaking. As a HUGE Broncos fan, yesterday's loss doesn't compare to this tragedy.

    For some unknown reason, I woke up at 3 AM today, couldn't fall back asleep. Turned on CNN and they announced Darrent's death.

    Sad day.

    Unhappy

    I read that he was at a party and there was an argument, but he wasn't specifically involved. This is just so sad.

    A little after 2 a.m., a white Hummer limousine was fired on from a vehicle that pulled up along its side, police spokesman Sonny Jackson said. As many as a dozen bullet holes were visible on the driver's side of the vehicle. One window was blown out and four others had bullet holes.

    Three people in the limo were hit and taken to St. Anthony Central Hospital, where one man was pronounced dead, Jackson said. The other man and woman who were shot were not identified.

    The Rocky Mountain News reported that wide receiver Javon Walker was one of the passengers but wasn't wounded. It was unclear how many people were in the limo.
    Jackson said there was a dispute at a nightclub several blocks from the shooting where Williams and his group had attended a New Year's Eve party. He said the argument didn't specifically involve Williams, according to witnesses.

    "Why this happened, we're not sure," Jackson said. "There was some confrontation between a group of people in the vehicle and a group at the nightclub."

    Police were searching for a white Suburban or Tahoe they suspect was involved in the shooting. Jackson wouldn't identify any of the other passengers nor would he confirm whether any other Broncos players were in the vehicle at the time of the shooting, saying they were all witnesses

    My feelings too, I question it especially when I read that he was planning on off time to have discussions about gangs in high schools (I wonder if he was involved in younger days or recently), it also said he had a tough childhood. He might have seen someone who was a previous enemy.

    Hmmm

    Betcha they find the culprits. Lots of 'eyes' in the limo, lets hope their reaction time was good enough to ID the shooting vehicle.

    Local 'reliable' news stated that limo had quite a number of broncos in it, and would not release any names of occupants for fear of retribution.

    Local 'reliable' news also said that Darrent Williams was named as a co host of one of two parties that were being held at the club.

    Common local guess is that someone made a remark about how the Broncos played yesterday, that started the problem. But gee whiz how many people go to a club on New Years eve packing guns???

    Buzz you are so right. Two of my sons are in LE.
