AURORA, Colorado – Former Seahawks Safety Officer, Anthony "T.J." Cunningham was shot dead Monday during a dispute over a parking spot in Aurora, Colorado, sheriff officials said.
Cunningham, 46, was also a former football player at the University of Colorado and was currently senior assistant at Hinkley High School in Aurora.
The authorities claim that he was shot and killed by a 31-year-old neighbor, Marcus Johnson, in a parking lot between two colleges where they met to settle a long-standing dispute over a parking place.
Johnson was arrested on Monday and is currently being held for first degree murder.
Cunningham was catcher and defensive at college. He was a security for the Seahawks in 1996 before injuries ended his playing career.
University of Colorado sports director Rick George said Cunningham was an active alum and his death was a tragic loss.
