TMZ Sports is reporting that former NBA superstar Kobe Bryant and at least four other people have died Sunday morning, after the private helicopter they were traveling in crashed near Calabasas, California. First responders say a fire broke out at the crash site, and confirmed to the outlet that there were no survivors. Bryant’s wife Vanessa is not believed to be among the crash victims. The couple have four kids together: Gianna, Natalia and Bianca and newborn Capri. Bryant was passed just days ago on the NBA’s all time scoring list by LeBron James, and had tweeted his congratulations to James on Saturday. The cause of the crash is still under investigation, and the story is developing.
