Former NFL running back Zurlon Tipton has died after a gun in his car was accidentally discharged.
Tipton pulled into the service bay at a Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership in Roseville, Michigan on Tuesday morning. He went to take a duffel bag out of the trunk of his vehicle, and one of the two guns inside the bag reportedly went off. He was struck in the stomach. Tipton was taken to the hospital in good condition, but later died.
Tipton, who was 26, was signed by the Colts after going undrafted in the 2014 NFL draft. He was waved by the Colts on December 21, 2015.
