Apparently from self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest. Reported by KCTV5 news - don't know how to post links...

Police in Oceanside, Calif., investigating possible suicide of NFL great Junior Seau | Fox News (http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2012/05/02/police-probe-shooting-at-home-of-nfl-great-junior-seau-e/)

But it should probably be in the non-Chiefs section. Hate the Dolts and Cheatriots, but I really liked Seau.

I am shocked. First Chicago Bear Dave Duerson, then just last month Atlanta Falcon Ray Easerling, and now Junior have all committed suicide. Repeated concussions bring on severe depression and dementia. I don't know how many concussions Seau had in his career, but i would guess he shot himself in the chest instead of the head, so his brain could be examined.

In 2010 Seau drove his SUV off of a 30 foot cliff after being arrested for domestic violence. He said he fell asleep at the wheel. I wonder now ...

The after effects of multiple concussions are a serious issue in the NFL right now. I don't think more rule changes are the answer. I wonder if it is possible to design a better helmet?

The 8th player from the Chargers super bowl team dead before the age of 45.

Dude was a beast. I remember sitting at the very top of Arrowhead in a thunderstorm sometime back in the 90s and being amazed at how big that guy was even from way the hell up there. He was a fun player to watch. RIP Junior.

They really need to look more into the mental health of football players. The stories I saw mentioned he had injured himself prior. It is a shame to see people end their life in such a way.

I went ahead and moved this to the "Locker Room".

So sad to hear of this tragedy. A light has gone out in the world. I feel for the loved ones he left behind and pray for them.

I am still feeling pretty glum about this shocking, sad news. It's tough to know what was going on with the guy, all I can say is he was a marvel to watch on the field and seemed to be one of the guys who was happy and joking around with his teammates. He will be missed. :(

One of the guys that had everyone's respect and admiration. He was a beast on the field and a down right good guy off of it. Sad situation. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. RIP Jr.
