Roddy White's brother shot dead

The half-brother of Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was shot to death outside of a James Island, South Carolina, nightclub early Saturday morning.

Tyrone Moore Jr., 21, of Charleston, South Carolina, died of a gunshot wound, Charles County Deputy Coroner Kimberly Rhoton said.

Falcons owner Arthur Blank released a statement Saturday.

"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."

Charleston County Sheriff's Maj. Eric Watson said in a release that deputies were called to the Lake House Club on Mosquito Beach at 2:51 a.m. ET Saturday after a reported shooting. Witnesses said an altercation took place in front of the club and several gunshots were fired, one of which hit Moore.

He was rushed to Medical University Hospital in Charleston, where he was pronounced dead, Watson said.

The shooting is still under investigation. A full autopsy is currently being performed, Rhoton said.

Moore had lived with White in Atlanta for several years, the team confirmed.

White, 32, lettered in football, baseball, and wrestling at James Island High.

"When you get into one of these groups, there's only a couple of ways you can get out. One, is death; the other, is mental institutions."

Rivalries mean nothing when something heartbreaking like this happens. My prayers are with Roddy and his family. Only 21 years old... RIP Tyrone.

God be with his family.

Falcon or not, let's hope that Roddy has the sense to not seek retribution.

When seeking revenge, dig two graves.

Goddamn... Now the brother of Julio Jones got shot in the arm in Gulf Shores and had to have the arm amputated. Harry Douglas... You might want to tell your brother to lay low for a while.
