MIAMI -- Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor has died, a day after he was shot in the leg, said family friend Richard Sharpstein.

He said Taylor's father called him around 5:30 a.m. to tell him the news.

"His father called and said he was with Christ and he cried and thanked me," said Sharpstein, Taylor's former lawyer. "It's a tremendously sad and unnecessary event. He was a wonderful, humble, talented young man, and had a huge life in front of him. Obviously God had other plans."

He said he did not know exactly when Taylor died.

Doctors had been encouraged late Monday night when Taylor squeezed a nurse's hand. But Sharpstein said he was told Taylor never regained consciousness after being transported to the hospital and that he wasn't sure how he had squeezed the nurse's hand.

"Maybe he was trying to say goodbye or something," Sharpstein said.

The 24-year-old Redskins safety was shot early Monday in his home in the upper leg, damaging an artery and causing significant blood loss.

A very sad day

If this is true, I pray that God would grant his family, friends, and his fans the strength and peace in thier hearts, despite the turbulent nature of everything going on.

Thanks guys for keeping us updated. I heard the same thing on WTOP (radio)this morning.
Back and better than ever!

wow. My heart cringed when I saw this on the boards......

I'm filled with sorrow and anger at whoever could do such a thing.... taylor did NOT deserve this and neither does his family.

There are only two teams I root for in the NFL. The Skins, and whoever is playing Dallas.

It's okay that we drafted a Landry. After this season, the crygirls will have a new association with that name.

I have no words to quanitfy my grief and frustration...this was a good man who didn't deserve this. He had his whole life in front of him and it was mercilessly stolen. I've been in tears this whole morning trying to be optimistic.......
...any given Sunday....

RIP #21 Sean Taylor. You will be loved and adored by Redskins fans forever!!!!!

The National Anthem sucks.
What a useless piece of propagandist rhetoric that is.

CNN has also confirmed it.

As a believer, I pray that his father's words are true, that "he's with Christ". That comforts me during this difficult time.
Back and better than ever!

This is horrible. This is one of those situations where you don't know why God does it because everything seemed to be going good for Sean in his life.

RIP Sean. You and my family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

This is a damn shame and may the person who murdered you rot in hell.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family, such a senseless tragedy.

My prayers are certainly with his family and the Redskins organization. God rest his soul.
