Honeycutt's mother was reportedly the one who called police Friday, saying her son was acting erratically.

The LAPD responded to a call Friday night about a man with a gun outside of a residence and, upon arrival, the suspect shot at them, said LAPD spokesperson Tony Im.

Police haven't officially released his name, but LAPD identified the suspect as Honeycutt on police scanners.

When SWAT officers entered the residence around 3:30 a.m. Saturday, police located an "unresponsive male" and pronounced Honeycutt dead at the scene, according to a tweet from the LAPD.

"Regarding last nights Officer-Involved Shooting in Van Nuys Division, it appears as if the suspect was not struck by any officer's gunfire", the account wrote. When officers arrived at the home, near Riverside Drive and Tyrone Avenue, the suspect opened fire on them, authorities said. He was then selected by the Sacramento Kings in the 2011 NBA Draft and only played two seasons in the pros.
