Falcons’ WR Roddy White’s brother murdered outside nightclub


In some sad news on this Saturday, the half-brother of Atlanta Falcons receiver Roddy White, Tyrone Moore Jr., was shot to death outside of a nightclub in South Carolina early on Saturday morning.

Just a short time ago, Falcons owner Arthur Blank released a brief statement in regards to the incident.

“We were all saddened to learn about the death of Roddy’s brother Tyrone. 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.”
Moore, just 21-years-old, was reportedly gunned down outside the Lake House Club on Mosquito Beach following an altercation, according to the Post and Courier. Several witnesses told deputies that they heard gunshots. Moore was taken to a local hospital where he was eventually pronounced dead.
At this time, there are no suspects in this heinous crime in custody nor a motive for the act and police investigators are currently looking into the matter.
Our condolences go out to White and the rest of his family during this difficult time and we can only hope that police find the individual or individuals involved.
