The half-brother of Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was murdered outside of Lake House Club in James Island, South Carolina, after an altercation led to gunfire in front of the nightlife spot early Saturday morning, according to ESPN.

Tyrone Moore, 21, of Charleston, South Carolina was pronounced dead at the Medical University Hospital in Charleston of a gunshot wound, the Charles County Deputy Coroner told ESPN.

Moore had lived with White in Atlanta for several years, the Falcons confirmed to ESPN.

"We were all saddened to learn about the death of Roddy's brother Tyrone," said Falcons owner Arthur Blank, releasing a statement this past weekend. "Roddy is part of our Falcons family, and families stand together in difficult circumstances. Roddy and his family can count on our support through this very trying time. On behalf of the entire Falcons organization, we extend our deepest sympathies and prayers to Roddy, his mother Joenethia, and their entire family."

The shooting is still under investigation, while a full autopsy is currently being performed.

White is a native of James Island, South Carolina.
