Former NFL all-star linebacker Junior Seau was found dead yesterday of what appeared to be an apparent self-inflicted gunshot. He was only 43.

Seau's girlfriend called 911 yesterday after she found him unconscious in a bedroom with an apparent gunshot to the chest. A gun was found near his body, but there was no suicide note found.

In a statement from the San Diego Chargers, it seemed they were at a loss for words.

"Everyone at the Chargers is in complete shock and disbelief right now. We ask everyone to stop what they're doing and send their prayers to Junior and his family."

Some are saying maybe his suicide was linked to brain injuries. All you can do is hope for the best for his friends and family.
