Former Cincinnati Bengals player Terrell Roberts has been shot to death in his grandmother's backyard, according to relatives. Witnesses described the suspect to officers as a bald black male with a short beard. Roberts subsequently went out to the back yard where officers found him.

Investigators determined the shooting happened in the garage following a disturbance between Roberts and the suspect. Investigators believe that Roberts and the unidentified man got into an altercation in the garage, leading to the former National Football League player getting shot.

A spokesperson at the Richmond Police Department did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

Roberts was signed by the Bengals in May 2003 after going undrafted out of Oregon State.

The 5-foot-10 Roberts saw most of his action in 2001 and 2002 for Oregon State.

Roberts's former teammates spoke out on social media after the shooting.

"Hadn't heard from bro in so long. Man I hadn't talk to bro in years", wrote Anderson.

Roberts' family said the former football player had no known enemies and was not "mixed up in anything bad", KPIX reported.
