Former*UCF*running back Otis Anderson Jr. was shot and k*lled at his parents' home in Jacksonville, Florida, on Monday evening, and his father has been charged in his death, shocking former teammates, coaches and those who knew him best in his Central and North Florida communities.

According to an arrest report released by the Jacksonville Sherriff's Office on Tuesday, Otis Anderson Jr.'s mother, Denise, told police that Anderson Jr. and his father, Otis Anderson Sr., got into an argument that escalated and then involved her. Anderson Jr. and Anderson Sr. eventually separated, but Denise Anderson told police that Anderson Sr. returned from the garage and met Anderson Jr. in the kitchen.

When police arrived, they found Anderson Jr. suffering from at least one gunshot wound to the chest. He was pronounced dead at the hospital. Denise Anderson was hospitalized with multiple graze wounds but later discharged.

Anderson Sr. was charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder. On Tuesday, he appeared in front of a judge, who found probable cause on the charges. Anderson Sr. was being held without bond and appointed a public defender. His next court appearance is set for Dec. 22.

Anderson Jr., 23, played at UCF from 2017 to 2020, rushing for 2,182 yards and 17 touchdowns, while catching 91 passes for 1,025 yards and nine touchdowns. Nicknamed "Juice" because of his OJ initials, he was beloved around the football team and known for his uplifting smile and personality.

UCF said in a statement, "We have now confirmed and are devastated to hear of the passing of Otis Anderson Jr. He was revered by his teammates, our fans, and everyone within Knight Nation. Our deepest condolences go out to everyone who loved Otis. He was taken too soon and will truly be missed."

The tributes poured onto social media throughout the day Tuesday. Anderson's*jersey and flowers were placed on the football field, and UCF*put photos of him on their videoboard*inside the football facility lobby.

His former coach Josh Heupel posted*a statement on Twitter, writing, "Saddened and stunned by the passing of Otis Anderson Jr. Tough and gritty, fun and full of laughter, he made such a positive impact on our university, community, and our locker room. He was an unbelievable teammate. My condolences go out to the entire UCF family."

Anderson was with the Los Angeles Rams for training camp this year. The NFL franchise said in a statement that "he was a promising young man with a bright future. Our sincere condolences are with his family during this very difficult time."

I love my father but he’s the type of father who would murder one of his children if he felt that one of us disrespected him.

Killing one’s own child—especially if that child is an adult—is ridiculous.

And if mom has “graze”wounds; he doesn’t seem to have been too concerned about her.

The fatal confrontation began after "Otis Lee Anderson Sr. got bit by (the victim's) girlfriend's dog" and "was bleeding throughout the house," according to a booking and arrest report.

The suspect then flipped a reclining chair before the two continued their argument, officials said.

The heavily redacted report quoted Anderson Sr. saying "Anderson Jr. charged at him" but it wasn't clear if the suspect was claiming self-defense.

Anderson Sr. also "stated multiple times that Anderson Jr. had never disrespected him before this incident," according to the report.



You gotta be kidding me

Yes. But still ridiculous.

One could make then case that with a young child a parent can still try to force them to respect them. But if the child is adult. They either respect you or they don’t. You can no longer make them do it.

When a father k*lls his son, it’s usually a matter of respect and the father decides that they’d rather end the son’s life than be disrespected. It’s worse to think this with a grown child because it’s a lost cause.

Tragic

That mom is in the worst place possible.

Her young talented son with much potential is dead, husband going to prison for life for k*lling his own son, a son he named after himself.

How is k*lling a young child going to make him respect you? It's a lost cause either way by definition, he's dead
