According to the LAPD, the incident began Friday at around 5 p.m. PT when police responded to a call about a "man with a gun" inside a Sherman Oaks residence. He appeared in 24 games for the Kings in two seasons, spending most of his time in the Kings' G-League affiliate, Reno Bighorns.
The police had to evacuate around 30 different people and at 2:30 am, the police found Mr. Honeycutt unresponsive inside the house, subsequently pronouncing him dead.
Honeycutt then barricaded himself in his home while officers waited diligently for any sign of self-defeat or retaliation.
LAPD posted on Twitter that "it appears as if the suspect was not struck by any officer's gunfire".
