Reche Caldwell, who had one of his best seasons as a wide receiver in the NFL alongside Tom Brady at the New England Patriots, has reportedly been shot and killed at the age of 41 during an attempted robbery at his home in Tampa.

Caldwell is said to have returned home to retrieve a jacket while preparing to take his girlfriend on a date when he was shot in the chest and leg by two intruders, according to accounts quoting the former NFL star’s mother, Deborah, which claim that the attack was a targeted rather than random murder.

The older brother of former Super Bowl champion Andre died in the ambulance on his way to hospital after emergency services arrived at the scene, according to a TMZ report that says two ambushers leaped out of bushes in an attempt to rob him.

Caldwell, whose real name is Donald, spent half of his six-season NFL career with first-team San Diego Chargers before switching to the Patriots in 2006, where he caught 61 passes from Brady for 760 yards and four touchdowns – all career highs.
