SAN DIEGO (AP) - Those who knew and loved Junior Seau say they didn’t see this coming.

Like many of Seau’s friends, former Chargers safety Miles McPherson was still trying to comprehend the death of the former NFL linebacker the day after his body was found inside his home in suburban Oceanside. Police said he died of a gunshot wound to the chest, an apparent suicide that is still being investigated.

McPherson says Seau’s death is puzzling.

Seau’s ex-wife, Gina, told The Associated Press that while Seau sustained concussions during his playing career, she had no idea if they somehow contributed to his death.
