Bryce Dejean-Jones, the UNLV transfer who stared for the 2014-15 Cyclones, was shot to death early Saturday morning in a Dallas apartment. Travis Hines of the Ames Tribune was the first to report the news of Dejean-Jones' passing.

Randy Peterson of The Des Moines Register has additional information on Dejean-Jones' death as relayed to him by the Dallas Police Department:

During his short stint in Ames, Dejean-Jones started in 21 games while playing in 33 and was Iowa State's fourth leading scorer. His time in Ames was known for both the extreme high - his 27 point, 8-8 from the field performance against Arkansas - and the extreme low - a suspension for repeated noise violations before the Iowa game.

While Dejean-Jones was a polarizing figure during his time in Cyclone uniform, he appeared to have put his career on track when he signed a three-year deal with the New Orleans Pelicans after appearing in 14 games for the club this past season. Now another career, and life, has been cut short for reasons no one is quite sure of yet. WRNL will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.

Godspeed, Bryce.
