01.01.07. DENVER (AP) - Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams, a former Oklahoma State football standout, was shot and killed in a
drive-by shooting in downtown Denver early Monday morning.
Broncos spokesman Jim Saccomano says police called him about 4
a-m from the scene of the shooting and told him three people had
been shot and that the 24-year-old Williams had been killed.
Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson says that a little after 3
a-m, a white Hummer limousine was sprayed with bullets from a
vehicle that pulled up along its side.
Jackson says three people in the limousine were hit and were
taken to area hospitals, where one man was pronounced dead.
Jackson says police were searching for the suspects and
interviewing witnesses and that no motive has been determined.
Hours before the shooting, the Broncos lost to San Francisco
26-to-23 in overtime, eliminating them from the playoff race.
Williams finished the season with 88 tackles, 78 of them solo,
and four interceptions.
He played for O-S-U from 2001 to 2004.
