MIAMI (AP) -Police remained without a suspect Wednesday in the shooting death of Sean Taylor, looking for clues in hopes of determining who barged into the home of the Washington Redskins' star safety.
No description of a suspect has been released, and police haven't made available results of Taylor's autopsy or the 911 call his girlfriend placed to report the shooting early Monday. He died a day later at 24.
Authorities took numerous pieces of evidence, including a computer, from Taylor's home. Police are studying a possible connection between the shooting and a burglary at the home eight days earlier.
At Taylor's high school, Gulliver Preparatory, hundreds of students gathered for a memorial in which the player was remembered for his persona off the field and his unyielding defense on it.
``You found yourself drawn to him,'' said John McCloskey, one of Taylor's coaches at Gulliver. ``He would charm you with his soft-spoken nature and his polite demeanor.''
Speakers contrasted the Taylor they knew with the one often portrayed in the media by his lapses - a drunken driving charge that was dismissed, his firings of two agents, numerous fines and an episode two years ago when he was accused of brandishing a gun.
``It's sad that everybody thinks he's this aggressive and mouthy athlete,'' said Arriana Marion, who went to high school with Taylor. ``He was really just a phenomenal person.''
Gulliver football coach Earl Sims said that when Taylor returned to his alma mater he was met by adoring students.
``The whole energy in the room changed because everybody's eyes lit up and they were listening for the words that fell off his lips,'' he said. ``Every time he spoke, the environment changed.''
