A former defensive lineman for the Green Bay Packers was found shot to death in his Alabama home on Monday night.
Carlos Gray, 25, was discovered around 9:56 p.m., according to the Jefferson County Coroner's Office. Sheriff's deputies and Center Point Fire and Rescue were dispatched to the house on Balboa Terrace after his girlfriend found him unresponsive, reported AL.com.
According to Chief Deputy Randy Christian, Gray's girlfriend had left his home for about an hour and returned to a bloody scene.
Once deputies arrived and conducted a search of the home, they reportedly found marijuana, digital scales, a Glock handgun with an extended magazine and an AK-47 rifle with a large capacity magazine.
Gray graduated from Pinson Valley High High School in Alabama and played college football for North Carolina State after spending some time at a junior college. In 2014, he entered NFL draft. Although he wasn’t drafted, Gray signed a three-year $1.5 million contract with the Green Bay Packers as a free agent.
He was released from the Packers in 2015. He then returned back to Alabama, where he renovated houses, sold cars and worked as a party promoter. Gray was the father of two young children.
Christian said the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office at 205-325-1450 or Crime Stoppers at 205-254-7777.
