Former NFL player Terrell Roberts was shot and killed in California's Bay Area on Wednesday, Richmond Police Sgt. Enrik Melgoza told CNN. Witnesses described the suspect to officers as a bald black male with a short beard. Officers found him in the backyard with a gunshot wound to his chest.

At this time, it is unclear what caused the disturbance and whether Robert and the suspect knew each other.

A message seeking additional comment from Richmond police was not immediately returned early Thursday.

The Berkeley, California native attended Oregon State, before signing with the Bengals as an undrafted free agent in 2003.

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