The half-brother of Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was shot and killed outside a South Carolina nightclub early Saturday morning, and local authorities are still looking for suspects and a motive.

According to David MacDougall of the Charleston Post and Courier, 21-year-old Tyrone Moore Jr. was shot outside the Lake House Club on James Island.

Moore lived with White in Atlanta for a time and attended high school there, before returning to their hometown.

“We were all saddened to learn about the death of Roddy’s brother Tyrone. Roddy is part of our Falcons family, and families stand together in difficult circumstances,” Falcons owner Arthur Blank said in a release. “On behalf of the entire Falcons organization, we extend our deepest sympathies and prayers to Roddy, his mother Joenethia, and their entire family.”

Our condolences also go out to White and his family.
