The Nigerian national basketball player, Chinedu Onyeuku, 29, whom we reported died in our news of Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012, was reportedly killed while trying to break into a home in Plano on November 21.

Late Chinedu Onyeuku, 29.

The Daily Mail reports that he was shot and killed by the homeowner, police say.

While quoting the Dallas News, it was reported that Onyeuku and a yet to be identified accomplice allegedly tried to break into a residence on Rio Grande Street in Plano, Texas the night of November 21.

The homeowner told Plano police that he saw ‘multiple people’ approaching the house. The two apparently entered the residence by breaking a glass patio door.

The homeowner shot Onyeuku, killing him instantly. His accomplice ran away without injury. Police are still trying to track the second burglar. Upon their arrival, EMT workers pronounced him dead at the scene.

It is unclear why Onyeuku and his companion were trying to burglarize the residence.
