Agent: Pelicans' Dejean-Jones in 'wrong place' when shot

DALLAS (AP) Bryce Dejean-Jones had a bright future in the NBA, the league commissioner said following the death of the New Orleans Pelicans guard who was shot after kicking down the door of what he mistakenly thought was his girlfriend's apartment in Dallas.

The death of the promising 23-year-old player rattled the league over the long weekend and raised questions about what led up to the shooting.

Dallas police said Sunday they would not have more information about the incident until after the holiday and did not answer The Associated Press' question regarding whether the man who shot Dejean-Jones would face charges. It is legal in Texas for people to use deadly force to protect themselves from intruders.
