Default Denver Bronco killed in drive by 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. 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.

Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson said that a little after 2 a.m., the white Hummer limousine that Williams and two others were traveling in was sprayed with bullets from a vehicle that came up along its side. All three people in the limousine were hit. They were taken to area hospitals, where Williams was pronounced dead. The other victims, a male and a female, were not identified. Hours before the shooting, the Broncos lost to San Francisco 26-23 in overtime, eliminating them from the playoff race.

Williams, a second-round pick in the 2005 draft out of Oklahoma State, started nine games as a rookie due to injuries. This season, he took over as the starter for Lenny Walls alongside Champ Bailey, and was second on the team with four interceptions and tied for third with 86 tackles.

On Sunday against the 49ers, he had a sack, a forced fumble, and led the team with seven sacks.

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


R.I.P. Tragic

OMG..........senseless, tragic.........I'm speechless. My sincere condolences to his family, the Broncos and the city of Denver.

What is it in Denver......that's the same city Joey Porter was shot in.

What a horrible, senseless tragedy. My sympathies go out to Mr. Williams' family and the Denver Broncs organization. May he rest in peace.

williams was a rising young playmeaker with potential star power. he was a key piece to their playoff run last season i heard an interview or 2 with him on sirius and he really sounded like a humble young man who was honored to play alongside the master, champ bailey. i hope his 2 little kids are looked after well.

of course the rumors will fly. the ones theyre trying to dismiss on sirius is that drugs were involved, and that javon walker was in the limo. it does seem that walker was at the same club though.

Adam sheffield was just reporting they were at a party and on their way to Allen Iversons party and rubbed up against some gang bangers at the first party Brandon Williams the Bronco's WR suggested that the guys should get out of their and leave, they did leave. They got in the car and the gang bangers supposedly followed them outside and began firing shots. He does say that this info hasn't been confirmed but did say that Williams died instantly and either died next to or in the lap of Javon Walker. He said details are still sketchy and unconfirmed. Later at the Broncos facility Javon Walker was seen with blood spattered across his shirt.
