Brother of Washington Football Team’s defensive end shot and killed in Virginia

Montez Sweat lost his brother in a shooting near Richmond, Virginia. According to reports, Anthony Sweat, 27, was shot and killed this week.

The shooting happened in broad day light. According to reports, the shooting happened around 4:09 p.m. on Tuesday. Anthony was pronounced dead at the scene. It’s unclear what led up to the shooting.

This is the second major incident that happened to the Washington Football Team. Just a week ago, Deshazor Everett was involved in a single-car crash outside of Washington on Christmas Eve, which left a female dead.

Please keep Montez and his family in your prayers.

Washington head coach Ron Rivera said this about the situation.

“When a brother goes through something, we got to feel where they’re coming from and we’ve got to comfort them,” defensive tackle Tim Settle said. “It’s about staying together… Things happen all around the league and that’s what makes teams a team.”
