Former Orioles and Rays player Danny Clyburn Jr. was shot and killed early Tuesday morning in his hometown of Lancaster, S.C., reports the Lancaster Herald.

Obviously, details are still sketchy at this point, but witnesses reportedly told police Clyburn was seen arguing with a man moments before he was shot. And then there's this (from the Herald):
Derrick Lamont Mcilwain, 36, of Lancaster, has been arrested and charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. Mcilwain turned himself in to authorities early Tuesday, police said, and he is in the detention center awaiting a bond hearing.
Clyburn played 41 games in three seasons for the Orioles and Rays back in 1997-99.

He was just 37 years old.

What a waste of a human life. Prayers and thoughts to the family and friends of Danny Clyburn. I hope they police apprehended the right guy and convict him. RIP Danny.

It's sad to hear anytime someone passes, especially murdered.  Just another thug who needs a gun instead of his hands.
