Per NBC Sports, the Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank issued this statement:
We were all saddened to learn about the death of Roddy’s brother Tyrone,” the statement said. “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 homicide is still under investigation as authorities search for the suspects and a motive.
My prayers certainly go out to White and his family for their loss. It’s even more tragic because White’s brother was so young.
