A 911 call reporting a possible suicide was made to police at 10 a.m., a dispatcher said.

This is just awful news. Junior’s had a ton of problems… prayers are that it didn’t lead him to take his life. Either way, if a gun went off in his home…this is bad, bad news. His life? Someone else’s life? I have no clue what’s happening. We’ll keep you posted.
**UPDATE** TMZ is reporting Seau is dead.
NFL legend Junior Seau was found dead in his home in Oceanside, CA … and cops are investigating a shooting … multiple law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Cops are currently at Seau’s home just outside San Diego. Seau was 43-years-old … and leaves behind 3 kids and an ex-wife.
Seau was a beast in the NFL — skyrocketing to fame thanks to his explosive play with the San Diego Chargers, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots. The USC standout was selected in the first round of the NFL draft in 1990 and played in the league for 20 years.
Seau was involved in a car accident back in 2010 when he drove his SUV off a cliff in Carlsbad, CA hours after he was arrested for allegedly attacking his girlfriend. Seau later said he was not trying to kill himself … insisting he had fallen asleep at the wheel.
TMZ is now reporting that the police think he shot himself. Junior Seau committed suicide. Just awful, horrible news. Prayers to his family. Those poor kids…
