    Man that terrible, really really sad. The guy goes out on New Years Eve, does the right thing by hiring a limo, so he doesn't get in trouble, and gets shot! Just 24 years old. sad.

    This is such a tragedy, I can't even believe this. I can't shake that feeling that this may not have been so random either- Darrent was criticized heavily this year for his play and you never know when a 'fan' will cross the line.

    My prayers go out to the Broncos and Williams' family.

    Omy. What a sad ending to the year-my condolences to his family and to the Broncos as well. Scary stuff... in a limo on New Year's Eve and shot to death. Geez...

    If I remember right, I think that he hurt his shoulder yesterday and was out for most of the game.

    I am shocked right now. Even though I hate the Broncos, I liked Williams and thought he was going to be a good corner for them.

    Oh my God, that really puts all your petty c r a p in perspective, doesn't it?

    The kid was playing NFL football yesterday afternoon and now he's dead.

    24 years old, with the whole world at his feet!

    You just never know...live each day...carpe diem!

    My prayers and condolences to his family...

    This is depressing on several levels, not the least of which is that he was practically a kid. My thoughts are with his family.

    Broncos CB Darrent Williams killed

    Broncos' Darrent Williams Is Shot Dead

    Police Say Denver Broncos Cornerback Darrent Williams Was Shot and Killed in a Drive-By Shooting in Denver

    By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Sports Writer

    DENVER Jan 1, 2007 (AP)— Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting early Monday, his limousine sprayed with bullets in downtown Denver.

    Team spokesman Jim Saccomano said police called him about 3 a.m. from the scene and told him three people had been shot, and the 24-year-old Williams had been killed. The killing came hours after the Broncos were eliminated from the playoff race.

    A little after 2 a.m., a white Hummer limousine was fired on from a vehicle that pulled up along its side, police spokesman Sonny Jackson said. There were at least eight bullet holes in the limo.

    Three people in the limo were hit and were taken to hospitals, where one man was pronounced dead, Jackson said. The other man and woman who were shot were not identified.

    Jackson said police were searching for suspects and interviewing witnesses.

    "We have no motive yet," Jackson said. "We're hoping to talk with witnesses to find out where they were coming from, and that might give us some clues."

    Saccomano said he spoke with coach Mike Shanahan and others in the organization. Hours earlier, the Broncos lost to San Francisco 26-23 in overtime.

    "Complete shock. We're speechless. It takes words away. A terrible tragedy," Saccomano said.

    Pro Bowl player Champ Bailey was among the players and team staff members who gathered at Denver Health Medical Center, where Williams' body was taken.

    "He had a big heart and a lot of courage," said Cedric Smith, assistant strength and conditioning coach. "It's a tragedy, a complete tragedy. It's sickening."

    Williams teamed with Bailey to give Denver one of the top cornerback tandems in the NFL. Williams finished the season with 88 tackles, 78 of them solo, and four interceptions.

    Players and coaches are off Monday. They were scheduled to meet Tuesday before heading home for the offseason.

    On Sunday against the 49ers, Williams had three tackles and returned two punts for 50 yards before leaving the game with a shoulder injury late in the second half. After the game he said he was planning to wait a few weeks before determining if he needed an operation.

    In December, Williams spoke of his desire to return to his hometown of Fort Worth, Texas, this offseason to talk to kids about staying out of gangs.

    Williams, a second-round draft pick out of Oklahoma State in 2005, made an immediate impact on the Broncos. He started nine times in his rookie season following a stellar college career.
