NBA basketball player, Bryce Dejean Jones was accidentally shot by a man early Saturday morning in Dallas when the player entered a wrong apartment.
Dejean-Jones 23, collapsed in the breezeway and died later on from his injuries whilst being transported by police to a local hospital in the US, police spokesman Demarquis Black said.
Black said a Dallas resident told police in a statement that he heard someone enter his apartment by kicking open the front door.
The frightened man called out to the individual but he heard no response and fired his gun when his door was kicked opened by Jones.
Scott Nichols, the basketball player's agent said Jones was in Dallas for the first time to visit his girlfriend’s new apartment on his daughter's first birthday.
