Tennessee Titan found dead in front of old high school

Tennessee Titans wide receiver O.J. Murdock was found dead Monday morning in front of the Tampa high school he graduated from, according to the Tampa Police Department.

He was 25 years old.According to a news release distributed by the Tampa police, Orenthal James Murdock was found in his car at approximately 8:30 a.m. in front of Middleton High School.

He had suffered an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound and was transported to Tampa General Hospital in critical condition.

Murdock was pronounced dead at 10:43 a.m.

After Murdock failed to report to the Titans’ training camp last week, coach Mike Munchak said Murdock had been excused for “personal reasons.”

No details have emerged of the issues that Murdock was dealing with.

An undrafted free agent who signed with the Titans last year, Murdock was forced to sit out the entire season with an Achilles injury.

Murdock began his college career at South Carolina,  playing two years, prior to transferring to Fort Hays State, playing his final two collegiate years.
