Tennessee Titans' wide receiver O.J. Murdock has died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. The Tampa Bay Police state he died at 10:43 a.m. on Monday.

According to an earlier report by the Tampa Bay Times, Murdock, 25, was found in his car by police at 8:30 a.m. Monday morning in front of a Tampa Bay high school. He was taken to Tampa General Hospital with injuries listed as critical, according to the report.

Middleton High School, the high school at which Murdock was found, was the same high school he attended.

The Titans signed Murdock in July 2011 as an undrafted free agent, but he injured his Achilles during training camp last season and spent the entire 2011 year on the injured reserve.
