Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor has died in a Florida hospital, one day after being shot at his home.
Taylor's former lawyer, Richard Sharpstein, says he received the news this morning from Taylor's father.
Sharpstein calls Taylor's death a "tremendously sad and unnecessary event." He says the player was a "wonderful, humble, talented young man, and had a huge life in front of him."
Doctors had been encouraged last night when Taylor squeezed a nurse's hand. But Sharpstein said he was told Taylor never regained consciousness after being transported to the hospital.
Police are still investigating the shooting as a possible armed robbery.
