Police said officers found Abdul-Ghafer unresponsive in the building’s hallway. He was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.

A motive remains under investigation, and no other injuries were reported.

Bae Beef: Russell Wilson Reveals What Caused The First Fight Between Him And Ciara

Kelly Rowland and her husband Tim Witherspoon joined Ciara and her football player boyfriend Russell Wilson and Basketball player Carmelo Anthony and Lala Vasquez for dinner at 'Madeo' Italian Restaurant in West Hollywood, CA

Russell Wilson Reveals The Subject Of The First Fight Between Himself And Ciara

Via Complex

Ciara might be dating Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson right now. But back in January, the R&B singer took to Instagram and insinuated that her favorite NFL quarterback was Tom Brady. Shortly after the Patriots beat the Ravens to advance to the AFC Championship Game, Ci-Ci posted a video to IG and proclaimed that she would rep Brady “all day, every day” in it

Wilson appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and, while most of the interview featured him giving bland answers about his current contract situation and his baseball career, Jimmy Kimmel managed to get a little bit of a reaction out of him when he played Ciara’s video. Wilson laughed when Kimmel played it before admitting that he hadn’t seen the clip until recently.

“That was our first argument,” Wilson said. “I saw that about a week ago.”

Wilson also revealed that Ciara offered up a pretty lame excuse for why she made the video when he asked her about it.

“Her response was, the following week she was cheering for the Seattle Seahawks and that she was rooting for us the whole time,” he said. “I don’t know.”

Athletes Celebrate the 4th of July

The Fourth of July celebrates the moment 13 colonies along the eastern coast of North America made their independence from Great Britain official—even if King George III didn’t get the memo.


Whether you’re a citizen of these United States—or someone who just loves to live, visit or work here—July Fourth needs no justification.  We have it so good that even on the day set aside to celebrate the nation’s birthday, we get to do all the actual celebrating; while the country goes about its business as usual.

Independence Day is about taking a break from ‘playing it cool’ when it comes to showing how much you appreciate this land and wearing your patriotism on your sleeves (sometimes literally.) It’s a day dedicated to hanging out with family and friends; eating an absurd amount of food cooked on a grill and finding the best spot to watch fireworks.

Athletes, like the rest of us, are enjoying the summertime revelry of the Fourth of July weekend—and sharing the moment with the rest of the world on Instagram. Some of them are celebrating Independence Day the same way many of us do; others are swapping picnics for more swanky endeavors.

We’re looking for some of the best July Fourth athlete pics and sharing them with you. And, we’ll be updating the slideshow throughout the day and night—so check back!
