Yesterday was certainly a horrible day for Oakland Raiders’ player Chris Johnson.

 

NBC Sports reports the cornerbacker left the team for Texas on Wednesday, December 7, 2011 as a result of a horrible family tragedy: his sister and his mother had been shot; his sister, Jennifer Johnson, was killed and his mother, Della Johnson, is in severe condition.

 

The website says the shooter is the father of Johnson’s two-year-old niece. The child is said to have not been present at the time.

 

As a result of the incident, 46-year-old Eugene Esters has been charged with murder and attempted murder.

 

There’s no word yet as to when Johnson can be expected to return.
