Du’Vonta Lampkin, an ex-Oklahoma lineman, died at the age of 25 after being shot.
Du’Vonta Lampkin, a former defensive lineman for the Oklahoma Sooners, was found dead Thursday after he was shot, but police don’t know why.
They found Lampkin, 25, lying on his back with a single gunshot wound at a rental home in Dallas. They were called there after someone told them he had stopped answering his phone.
Police say that soon after, medical help arrived to try to save Lampkin, but he died at the scene.
According to reports, Lampkin’s backpack, cell phone, and wallet were gone.
On Thursday, Dallas Police asked anyone who had information about the investigation to come forward and talk to them.
It was Friday morning when the Oklahoma football team made a statement on social media.
This is what OU Football tweeted: “The OU Football family is deeply saddened by the death of former player Du’Vonta Lampkin.” “Du’Vonta was full of life and spirit. She was a great teammate and a lot of fun to be around.” His family and friends are in our thoughts, prayers, and thoughts.
Lampkin was a defensive tackle for Oklahoma from 2015 until 2017. In his last year at Norman, he played in 10 games, making 13 solo tackles and nine assists.
It was Lampkin’s redshirt sophomore year, and he left school early. He didn’t get chosen in the 2018 NFL Draft, though. As soon as summer came, he signed with the Titans. He was let go before the start of the season.
When Lampkin was done playing indoor football, he would play for the Massachusetts Pirates of the Indoor Football League for a single season,
