T.J. Cunningham was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in 1996. According to TMZ, the 46-year-old was fatally shot to death after arguing with a neighbor over a parking spot.

Officials state that Cunningham and 31-year-old Marcus Johnson, who lives across the street, agreed to meet at Eaglecrest High School to settle the beef. Johnson bought a gun but Cunningham didn’t have a weapon.

Cunningham was shot several times and died from his wounds. He leaves behind his wife and five children, a GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money for his family.

Johnson has been arrested on suspicion of first-degree attempted murder. The police have recovered the gun. Cunningham only played nine games for the Seahawks before suffering a knee injury that ended his career.

    TJ didn’t get the memo; don’t bring fist to a gun fight. Should have stayed home with his white woman and he would be alive. This is what happens when you are to stubborn to back down. What was TJ protecting – concrete, the curve, rocks…? Now they will throw dirt on him and his kids will grow up without him. Dead Dummy. Stop challenging and talking down to people like Marcus Johnson. Move on and let it go or rest you head in the dirt.

    • Do you think he’d be alive if the woman he left at home had been black? The race of his spouse had nothing to do with him getting slaughtered. It was the inability of two grown men to sit down like civilized humans and settle a dispute instead of deciding to act like two 12 year-olds meeting at the schoolyard to fight. But that’s what comes of trusting someone to treat you fairly just because they’re the same race as you. See the irony there Teddy?

        Don’t pay Buttpecan any attention. It’s only Macfaggot being the coward it always is.

      • I figured it was a troll because there’s always a negative comment from it… on EVERY story… it must live a very sad and miserable life. But, I have a more important concern. I would like to know why BAW doesn’t have moderators to monitor the racist and imbecilic comments left by this idiot, and others.
