PINSON, Ala. — Authorities say a former Green Bay Packers player has been found shot to death in his home in Alabama.

The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office says former Packers defensive lineman Carlos Gray was found shortly before 10 p.m. Monday near Birmingham, Alabama. The 25-year-old is a native of Pinson, Alabama.

Al.com reports that sheriff’s deputies and Center Point Fire and Rescue were dispatched to the house after a friend found Gray wounded and unresponsive. The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office indicated the following in a news release:

“When deputies arrived on scene they checked the home for additional victims or suspects. While clearing the house deputies reported seeing marijuana, digital scales, a glock handgun with an extended magazine and an AK 47 rifle with a large capacity magazine all laying in plain view.”

Gray played at North Carolina State University and signed with the Packers as a free agent in 2014.

Al.com reports that he was released from the Packers in 2015 and returned home to Alabama. He was the father of two young children.
