Note to self: Be careful which apartment you break into.  :rant:

Police responded to a shooting at an apartment around 3:20 am and found Bryce Dejean-Jones of the New Orleans Pelicans wounded with a gunshot.

He died at the hospital.

The resident of the apartment tells police he was sleeping when someone kicked down his front door then his bedroom door.
He says he fired his gun once.

According to the New York Daily News, it appears Dejean-Jones thought he was breaking into an acquaintance's apartment but got the wrong one.

No sympathy at all.  Just validates my belief that nba basketball has become  thug ball.

Seems he had a history with drugs.... found this from 2014 when he was still in college....

He was originally charged with hosting a drug house -- marijuana, as well as nuisance party regulations and a noise violation.

Charges were later dropped.... but get the feeling kicking in someone's door was probable drug related in some way.

Play with fire, get burned.

Why would a NBA player need to break into someone's apartment????? They got money? Well, they burn it all!  :mental:
