Default Titan's WR Commits Suicide



NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
A Tennessee Titans football player killed himself Monday morning outside the high school where he graduated from in Tampa, FL, according to local police.

Officers discovered wide receiver Orenthal James Murdock, 25, about 8:30 a.m. in his car in front of Middleton High School in Tampa with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Murdock was taken to Tampa General Hospital in critical condition but was pronounced dead at 10:43 a.m., Tampa police said.

Murdock was signed by the Titans in July 2011. However, he was on injured reserve after hurting his right foot during training camp, according to the team's website.

Murdock was listed on the team's "did not report list," according to WSMV Sports Director Rudy Kalis.

Below is a statement released by the Titans:

"We are shocked and saddened to hear of Orenthal James Murdock's death this morning. In his brief time here, a number of our players, coaches and staff had grown close to O.J., and this is a difficult time for them. He spent the last year battling back from an Achilles injury as he prepared for this year's training camp. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends as they try to cope with this tragedy."
