The half-brother of Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was shot and killed outside a South Carolina nightclub early Saturday morning, according to the Charleston Post and Courier’s David MacDougall.
Tyrone Moore Jr., 21, died of a gunshot wound, Charleston County Deputy Coroner Kimberly Rhoton said. Authorities were called to Lake House Club on James Island at 2:51 a.m. after several gunshots were fired. Moore was rushed to Medical University Hospital in Charleston where he was pronounced dead, Charleston County Sheriff’s Maj. Eric Watson said in a release.
According to McDougall, Moore lived with White in Atlanta for a number of years while attending high school before he moved back to his hometown.
Falcons owner Arthur Blank released a statement Saturday night.
“We were all saddened to learn about the death of Roddy’s brother Tyrone,” the statement said. “Roddy is part of our Falcons family, and families stand together in difficult circumstances. Roddy and his family can count on our support through this very trying time. On behalf of the entire Falcons organization, we extend our deepest sympathies and prayers to Roddy, his mother Joenethia, and their entire family.”
