2007: Sean Taylor, a free safety for the Washington NFL team, dies at the age of 24 after being shot the day before by intruders at his Miami, Fla., area home. His death would lead to an outpouring of national support and sympathy, especially in the Washington, D.C., area, where Taylor had been a fan favorite, and in the Miami area, where Taylor had starred for the Miami Hurricanes in college. Five suspects were arrested in connection with the burglary and shooting, with one of them pleading guilty and receiving a 29-year prison sentence in May 2008. The four remaining suspects are still awaiting trial.
