Brother of Colts player Denzelle Good dies after being shot in South Carolina
GAFFNEY, S.C. – The brother of Indianapolis Colts player Denzelle Good was killed in a drive-by shooting in South Carolina, according to WHNS.
Cherokee County Sheriff Steve Mueller said it happened along the 1200 block of Pleasant School Road around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Coroner Dennis Fowler identified the deceased as Overton Deshan Good, 23, of Pleasant School Road. Fowler said Good died after being shot in a drive-by shooting.
“Mr. Good and a friend were in the residence when gunfire erupted about 8:30 a.m. Multiple bullets struck the single wide mobile home, one of them striking the victim in the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene,” Fowler said in a news release.
Family members confirmed to WHNS that Overton is the brother of Colts offensive tackle Denzelle Good. Both brothers played football at Gaffney High School.
The Colts told the Indy Star that Good missed the team’s walk-through on Tuesday for personal reasons and it remains uncertain if he will play Thursday night in New England.
The Colts issued this statement, expressing their condolences:
“The Indianapolis Colts family is so saddened to learn of the passing of Overton Good, brother of our very own Denzelle Good, in South Carolina. This tragedy is unimaginable for his loved ones and friends, and our heartfelt prayers go out to Denzelle and his entire family during this trying time.”
