A man who suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound in a possible suicide attempt at a Calabasas motel Tuesday is former NFL quarterback Erik Kramer, a broadcast outlet reported Wednesday.
Deputies were sent about 8 p.m. Tuesday to the motel in the 26500 block of Agoura Road to check a man’s welfare and found the victim, who was airlifted to a hospital, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Kramer’s former wife Marshawn confirmed to NBC he had attempted suicide and said he had been suffering from depression, a result of playing in the NFL.
Kramer’s 18-year-old son Griffen, a quarterback at Thousand Oaks High School, died of a heroin overdose in 2011.
