A former NFL player — who was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks — was shot to death Sunday morning … and cops say it was all over an argument over a parking spot.
46-year-old T.J. Cunningham was a wide receiver and defensive back at the University of Colorado back in the early ’90s — and was selected in the 6th round of the 1996 NFL Draft.
But, cops say he was killed near Eaglecrest High School in Colorado after fighting with a neighbor over a parking spot.
Officials say Cunningham and 31-year-old Marcus Johnson — who lives across the street from Cunningham — agreed to meet near the high school to settle the beef, but Johnson brought a gun. Cops say Cunningham did NOT have a firearm.
Ultimately, cops say Cunningham was shot multiple times and died from his wounds. Johnson has been arrested on suspicion of first-degree attempted murder. Cops say they also found the gun.
Cunningham is survived by his wife and 5 children. A GoFundMe page has already been set up to help out his family.
Cunningham played in 9 games for the Seahawks before suffering a career-ending knee injury.
BlocBoy JB is following suit with a lot of other artists by filing his own suit against the creators of Fortnite for allegedly stealing a dance he popularized … TMZ has learned.
BB JB just sued Epic Games — the company behind Fortnite Battle Royale — for allegedly ripping off his dance the “Shoot” and throwing it into their game with a different name … the “Hype” dance.
According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, BlocBoy claims he’s the creator of the dance, and that Epic Games didn’t get permission to use it in Fortnite. Once again, he claims that while he hadn’t registered a copyright on the dance when Fortnite used it … he says he’s in the process of locking it down now.
Lots of other rappers and social media figures have filed similar suits — including one Alfonso Ribeiro, who’s got beef with the “Carlton” dance being used in the game, as well as Backpack Kid, who claims the game creators stole his move, “The Floss” — and they all seem to have the same claim … we popularized a dance, and therefore its ours.
