According to a police spokeswoman, officers found O.J. Murdock inside his car this morning with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The car was said to be parked in front of Middleton High School, where Murdock attended school.
Murdock was apparently taken to Tampa General Hospital, where he later died. Murdock did not attend training camp over the weekend because of a “personal issue”.
The Titan’s released this statement early on in the day “We are shocked and saddened to hear of O.J. 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.”
