    Kobe Bryant, 41, the legendary basketball star who spent 20 years with the Los Angeles Lakers, was killed when the helicopter he was traveling in crashed and burst into flames Sunday morning amid foggy conditions in the hills above Calabasas, sources told the Los Angeles Times.

    Bryant’s death stunned Los Angeles and the sports world, which mourned one of basketball’s greatest players. Sources said the helicopter took off from Orange County, where Bryant lived.

    The crash occurred shortly before 10 a.m. near Las Virgenes Road, south of Agoura Road, according to a watch commander for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Four others on board also died.

    Snipped from LA Times. Kobe leaves behind his wife and 4 children.

    Not really a basketball fan but still was numbing when I heard as someone like Kobe Bryant was a legendary sportsman not just a tennis player... RIP to him and his daughter. Also RIP the other 7 people
