About Tyler Honeycutt

Tyler Deon Honeycutt (July 15, 1990 – July 7, 2018) was an American professional basketball player. He played college basketball for the UCLA Bruins, where he earned first-team all-conference honors in the Pac-10 (known now as the Pac-12) as a sophomore in 2011. Honeycutt was selected by the Sacramento Kings in the second round of the 2011 NBA draft. He played with the Kings for two seasons and in 2013 moved to Europe, where he played for EuroLeague clubs Khimki and Anadolu Efes. He committed suicide following a shootout with police on July 6, 2018.


On the night of July 6, 2018, Honeycutt's mother called 911 and reported that he had been acting erratically. When police arrived they found that he had barricaded the entrance to his Sherman Oaks home before opening fire on them. After several hours, LAPD SWAT entered the home, where Honeycott was found dead inside the house. An autopsy determined that he committed suicide by a gunshot wound to the head.
