    Unhappy Sean Taylor Dies...**Update 11/30 - Arrests made in case**

    AP: Redskins safety Sean Taylor has dies

    MIAMI (AP) — 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.

    What an extremely sad tragedy. I can't believe he passed away. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Taylor family, Redskins organization, and his friends. RIP Sean Taylor.

    I smell foul play from the story I have heard from Taylor's girlfriend and the previous report of a breakin to the house a week prior to the event last night.

    -A breakin was reported at Sean Taylor's house a week prior to the event last night and a machete was left on Taylor's bed.

    -Taylor's girlfriend reported hearing loud noises in the house, followed by someone barging in their bedroom door and firing two shots hitting Taylor in the leg once; piercing a major artery and causing a lot of blood loss.

    This does not seem like an attempted burglery, the intruder cased the house a week earlier and left a sign of death on the bed. The intruder knew where Taylor would be and aimed to kill at least him, if not his girlfriend as well.

    There is quite a story behind this murder that is going to unravel in front of us as the weeks go on and the investigation continues.
