DENVER -- Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams was shot and killed early Monday morning in downtown Denver 7News reported exclusively on its 5 a.m. newscast.

Denver Broncos spokesman Jim Saccomano said that police confirmed the fatal shooting involving Williams and said there was "incredible shock and sadness at a senseless tragedy."

Williams, 24, was apparently riding in a limousine near 11th Avenue and Speer Boulevard just after 2 a.m. , when the shooting occurred. The shots came from another vehicle and two other people in the limo were also hit. Their conditions were unknown.

Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson said the two people were rushed to Denver Health Medical Center. He said the person who was most seriously wounded was pronounced dead at the shooting scene.

It was not immediately known what prompted the shooting.

A white stretch limo ran off the road near the intersection and had police tape around it shortly after the shooting. 7News anchor Mitch Jelniker, reporting from the shooting scene, said bullet holes could plainly be seen in several of the limo doors.

Jelniker said the intersection will be closed "for quite some time" which police investigate the shooting.

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

Team spokesman Jim Saccomano said police called him about 3 a.m. Mountain Time from the scene of the shooting and told him three people had been shot and that Williams had been killed.

Saccomano said he spoke with coach Mike Shanahan and others in the organization.

"Complete shock. We're speechless. It takes words away. A terrible tragedy," Saccomano said.

Hours before the shooting, the Broncos lost to San Francisco 26-23 in overtime, eliminating them from the playoff race.

stevieray - don't get me wrong, I agree with the basis of the statement. The chances of finding trouble increase dramatically after midnight, especially when bars are concerned.

A night like new years' eve is one of the few exceptions to staying out late. Bayless had nothing to add other than pointing it back to players essentially. Plus, I've never liked Bayless... he's an assclown.

I'm interested to learn more of the details. Sad event.

Bad day to be a Broncos fan. God knows what circumstances would lead to this type of event, maybe more will come out in the news in the next day or two.

Sometimes shootings like this are random acts of violence. Sometimes they happen for a reason, usually related to something stupid like jealousy, drugs or money. In any case, any time a young man dies as a result of senseless gun violence, it's a terrible thing.

Today we set our rivalry with the Broncos aside and send our condolences to the Williams family and all his Denver team mates and fans.

Javon Walker may have been in the limo as well but he appears to be ok.


Broncos coaches said Monday the incident may have begun at a bar where Williams and Broncos receiver Javon Walker got into an argument with some bar patrons, reports CBS affiliate KCNC-TV correspondent Reggie Rivers.

The Broncos players left the bar and drove away in a limousine, and may have been followed by the gunmen, the coaches said. Police have not confirmed these reports.

Jackson said police were searching for the suspects and interviewing witnesses.

"We have no motive yet," Jackson said. "We're hoping to talk with witnesses to find out where they were coming from, and that might give us some clues."

I hate the Broncos as much as any Chiefs fan. It would bring me great joy to see them go 0-16. But to hear news like this really saddens me. This crosses the line where it's no longer about a rival team, this was a man's life, a mother's son, a child's dad. And to think it happened in the streets of Denver of all places? Tragic, tragic news. I sincerely hope this wasn't a classless and deranged fan taking their frustration out on a player they ran into on the street.

Sort of... the other guy on the set turned to Bayless and said something to the affect of "Skip, this is a situation you have talked about in the past with players and nightclubs, tell us your thoughts." I'm paraphrasing, but that was essentially his lead in for Skip. Then, Skip shook his head as if to say "I hate to admit it, but yes ... wrong place wrong time". And, then he stepped onto the soapbox.

As I said - I'm not saying he wasn't in the wrong place at the wrong time, but without details of what happened... why even go there when the event happened just 6 hours before.

Just woke up and saw this on the ESPNNews ticker. I'm in a weird place right now. What tragic news for any fan of the National Football League. I just hope for all the world that this had nothing to do with an unstable fan upset at the Broncos' loss. That would be so horrible if it were the case.

Rest in Peace, Darrent Williams. Condolences to your family, the Denver Broncos organization, and Broncs fans everywhere.

Sorry to hear this as this could obviously happen to anyone (NFL player or average joe).

In San Diego two nights ago, an average joe looking guy walked into a dessert cafe, was "staring" at a couple couples eating dessert...management sent him off....within 15 minutes, the guy came back in, and fired off several shots from a gun at both couples, killing one and seriously injuring others....the point is, you just never know....and live each day to its fullest.

It's time to put aside football rivalries and join Denver fans - and football fans in general - in mourning the loss of a member of the close-knit NFL family.

Players may have different team loyalties, but in the end they are all an integral part of the same sport and have the same hopes and dreams.

At first I was thinking this was some disgruntled fan who did this, pissed at the team for not making the playoffs, but I was just listening to the interview with Tatum Bell, and he seems to think it might be related to an altercation that happened at a night club Williams had been at earlier, although Williams hadn't been involved in the altercation. Might it simply have been a case of mistaken identity? Of course, that makes it even more senseless and tragic.

On a side note...

"It is a terrible tragedy," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello added. "We don't know all the details yet, but we are reaching out to the Broncos to offer our support."

Why do I get the feeling that the offer of support will somehow mean the Broncos get all their games at home next year?

I asked earlier when the last time an active NFL player was shot and killed, here's a link. Phobia was correct.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2716478

partial list of shootings involving NFL players since 1992. Jan. 1, 2007 -- Denver Broncos (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=den) cornerback Darrent Williams (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=7232) was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting early Monday, his limousine sprayed with bullets in downtown Denver. Sept. 3, 2006 -- San Diego Chargers (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=sdg) linebacker Steve Foley (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=4483) was shot twice near his Poway home by an off-duty Coronado police officer who had followed him for several miles after suspecting him of driving drunk. He missed the entire 2006 season due to injuries. July 16, 2006 -- Cowboys defensive back Keith Davis (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=6269) was shot in the head and right thigh while driving on a Dallas Interstate. Davis was treated and released from Baylor Hospital from what police are believing was a car-jacking attempt. Davis recovered from his wounds and would go on to play in every game during this 2006 season. July 28, 2005 -- Philadelphia Eagles (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=phi) defensive end Jerome McDougle (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=6351) was shot in the abdomen during a robbery attempt in Miami. He missed the entire season due to injury but retured for the 2006 season. July 4, 2003 -- Chargers defensive back Terrence Kiel (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=6398) was shot outside a Houston mall in an attempted car-jacking. Kiel was shot once in his ankle, once in his knee and once around his stomach. Kiel went on to recover from his wounds and would eventually start seven games that season as a rookie. June 29, 2003 -- Cowboys defensive back Keith Davis was shot in the elbow and hip outside a Dallas area strip club. Davis would make it to the first day of training camp but was cut that day by the Cowboys. The shooting came about a month after Coach Parcells issued a warning to players about hanging out at places they weren't welcomed. Aug. 31, 2003 -- Pittsburgh Steelers (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=pit) linebacker Joey Porter (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=4723) was one of six people shot (one was killed) outside a Denver sports bar. Porter was shot and wounded in the left buttock. He recovered and went on to play 14 games that season. July 6, 2000 -- Carolina Panthers (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=car) running back Fred Lane was shot and killed by his wife, Diedra, during a domestic dispute. Lane's wife is serving a prison sentence after pleading guilty to manslaughter charges. May 3, 1992 -- Indianapolis Colts (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=ind) defensive end Shane Curry was shot in the head and killed outside a Cincinnati nightclub after a dispute regarding a blocked vehicle.

Just FYI, the area of the shooting is not a bad neighborhood or anything. I lived at the corner of 11th and Speer when I first moved to Denver, and I walk around 10th and Broadway many days when I come home from work. These are NOT parts of town where you go looking for trouble.

My guess is that he just ran afoul of some criminals who were jealous of him, though I'm a bit surprised that said criminals would frequenting those areas. There's one very popular night club (The Church) that's right in that area, and there are others nearby as well. You get all sorts of weird types at the church, but they aren't dangerous-looking weird types.

It's particularly sad when something like this happens, because he had achieved the American dream. He was playing football for a living, and getting rich doing it. His whole life was set, and then this happens. It's tragic.

I think there are a number of potential options.

1. General idiots/criminals in a bar who want to bring a rich football player down (high probability)

2. Same general idiots/criminals who lost a lot of money gambling (moderate probability)

3. Completely random drive-by (moderate probability)

4. Insane angry fan (low probability)

5. Organized gamblers that he had been tied in with - someone was supposed to take a dive (very low probability)

I have to chuckle that she called you a "classless idiot" and a Raiders fan, and you find the Raider comment more objectionable. You're definitely one of us.

Being called a fader fan was uncalled for-I was not making fun of this death in the least. I hate the Donks as much as anyone-but past the game would not want death on them. The guy had a family, and never deserved to be shot down in his prime.

With all the other silly would have could haves being thrown around-I was merely suggesting the first thing that came to mind-drugs. I have had two Meth houses in my neighborhood-shootings, fires-all from drugs-and I live 3 blocks from the police station. It is the #1 leader in violent crimes with alcohol a close second.

I just hope they get the bastards that did it. RIP and sorry Donk fans if my post seemed insensitive-they were not meant to be disrespectful.

It's always sad to hear of a life taken, especially at such a young age. My condolences to Darrent's family, friends and fans.

goddamm shame to have someone's life ended prematurely.

RIP, best wishes to the family.


(but many people not involved in sports have died this year, and they should not be overlooked simply because they can't intercept a pass)

Very sad....he was (yet again) one of Denver's great draft picks...the discrepency between how the Chiefs draft and the Broncos has always irked me. Much like how we passed on Darnell Docket and Chris Henry....who's the boneheads in the Chiefs warroom? Anyways...RIP DW...you were a great talent.

Sounds like the Houston Paper is picking up on more details and depth. The place they were at is supposedly been running under two names, has no signs, is in an old warehouse in an area that is sorta on the comeback from beeing pretty "seedY...thats in Houston paper story so dont bash me...

The deal was a birthday party for one of the ex Nugget players( who had a bad history)

I have a funny feeling on this whole thing but no doubt the media will get to the botton regardless of what the Bronco PR machine turns out.

Pure and simple tragic and what a loss to two kids. No sense to it from any angle at all.

I read a few pages and a lot of classy posts. Didn't really expect it but hey football is a game and when you are talking about someones life cheifs and broncos hatred torwards each other doesn't stand up much as far as I'm concerned. I don't like to see young people get killed and I feel for Williams young kids.

Thanks for the support of D. Williams over here at the planet.

Watch out folks are touchy- it was an angry gambler that got him according to some on here-lol

A nugget player was shot in that same area as Porter and Williams. Darrent might not have been the target from what it sounds like. It is all over the Fort Worth News in Texas because Williams was from there. What a senseless tragedy. The police have issued a description of the vehicle so maybe someone will come forward.

Not unlike the Bronco fans in the past, whom I've seen have a good laugh about DT's death....You're being one ignorant cocksucker, and its an embarrassment to this board.

They just said on NFL network that they were going from one party to another (Allen Iversons Party) when it happened. They also said he died in Javon Walkers lap. They think they had some words with some "gang bangers" at the first party and they followed them and shot at their vehicle. I hope they catch these vile piles of crap soon and give them the fuggen chair. :shake:

I just heard the other guys int he limo were Jevon Walker (Broncs WR) and some other WR with the Broncos. It's said Walker was holding Williams in his lap when he died.

Jesus Christ, it's horrible. I'm still choked up about it. We have so much history and rivalry with them, and as much as the fans say they hate the other's team, it's really out of emence respect. Emence and total respect for each other. I hope they catch the spineless piecees of shit that did this and just bludgon those low life mother****ers. A couple of "badass" gang bangers. More like low life losers, is what those bastards are. Nothing more. They're dirt. Things like this shouldn't happen, in the NFL, or any where. What the **** is up with the world? It's buyllshit, and it's unfair.

I first saw about the tragedy on the crawler on NFL network, then heard these comments from Shefter. Leaving Carmelo Anthony's part on the way to AI's. The part about DW dieing in Walkers lap just makes me cringe. All situations are different but I have a family member who discovered his father after he committed suicide years ago. That had a very big effect emotionally on the rest of his life, understandibly. That just reminded me of it when I heard what you did. I'm sure the NFL, and the broncos will have the necessary crisis people available to Walker and all people involved as well as all of the people this effects.

I really hope the media gives Walker his space and respect.

I also share the same thoughts as the rest on the board of this tragic, stupid, unessesary act that happened to Darrent.

He was a rival but you had to respect the player he was becoming. And obviously what has been mentioned about his living the dream and seeming to have a pretty good life for himself and plans for free kids football camps etc. Just getting the ball rolling.

Truly saddening.

RIP

Thoughts and prayers to DW and Family, Broncos Org and Fans.

Why was he out in a Limo after losing? Must have thought the Playoffs were in the bag and had it reserved I guess??Because it's New Year's Eve and he'd had a very bad day at work.

Football players aren't robots.

Just to clear up a few facts, this is not the same area where the Nuggets player and Joey Porter were shot. Very different parts of town for all three, so that's not a pattern.

I know the address that they're talking about, now that I read it. It's on a block that's been a little rundown in the past, and it's one of the last blocks that hasn't really turned around yet in a neighborhood that's really gone upscale over the past ten years. It's got some existing businesses that point more to the past - pawn shop, liquor store, etc. I think the club is either pretty new or it's very low-key, because I didn't even know there was a club there and I walk in that area all the time.

The thing that puzzles me most about this is why the limo was still parked there the next morning. Unless the driver was shot or the vehicle was somehow disabled, that location is three blocks from a Level I trauma center. Denver Health Medical Center is at 8th and Speer, three blocks away. Why didn't the limo driver hustle them over there?

I know buckinkeading said it earlier but this says that Javon Walker was in the Limo at the time of the shooting. Bet he knows what's up and they have been grilling him since.

DENVER -- The tears are only a thought away.


Every time Rosalind Williams thinks about her son, Darrent, they start falling again.


"He was hardworking, just full of life and big hearted," she said from a suburban Denver hotel room Monday night.


Williams, 24, who just completed his second season with the Denver Broncos, was killed Monday in a drive-by shooting following an altercation at a nightclub.


"All I can say is he did more in his 24 years ... maybe that's why he did so much because he knew his time on Earth was limited," Rosalind Williams said. "All day I've been in tears. I've been sick all day. If you say one wrong thing, I'll grieve. I'm taking it one minute at a time. I can't say one hour -- minute by minute. One minute I'm OK, and the next I'm not."


She said she's searching for answers about her only child's final moments. She wants to talk to receiver Javon Walker, who reportedly was in the limousine with Williams.


"I can't bring Dee back," she said. "I do want his killer brought to justice. If we turn the other cheek and let it go, that's saying it's OK to carry guns, do a drive-by. I pray for the killer that he gets his life right."


Williams' mother said she was comforted by the words of Broncos coach Mike Shanahan, who visited her hotel room Monday afternoon.


"It meant the world to me that Mr. Shanahan came to the hotel and had a talk with me," she said.


Williams was a second-round draft choice in 2005 out of Oklahoma State and teamed with Champ Bailey to give Denver one of the NFL's top cornerback tandems.


Funeral arrangements tentatively are planned for Saturday at Great Commission Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas, where Williams grew up.


Last month, he said he wanted to go to Fort Worth to talk to kids about staying out of street gangs.


His mother said those dreams don't have to die with him.


"I want every kid to know to live their life to the fullest," she said. "Don't let anyone say you can't do anything. Look what Dee achieved in 24 years."

Terrible news for his friends, family, and teammates. Sorry for all the Broncos fans out there. It's a real shame that someone's life can be snuffed out so easily and senselessly at such a young age. I can't imagine the trauma that those others in the limo experienced, and will have to deal with in the future.

That being said, I'll never understand why pro athletes always seem to find themselves in this kind of position. It seems like there's always some negative event associated with being out until 2 am at the club. Not justifying it in any way, but it's all too easy to get yourself in a compromising position in that environment.

I hope the authorities out there move quickly to get the piece of dirt that did it and lock his ass up for good.
