Kobe Bryant, the retired Los Angeles Lakers great, was killed Sunday in a helicopter crash in Southern California, according to reports. He was 41. Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter Gianna Maria Onore, known as GiGi, was among the victims.

The former Los Angeles Lakers star’s death as well as his daughter’s was initially reported by TMZ and confirmed by several outlets, including ESPN. The crash occurred around 10 a.m. local time in foggy conditions above Calabasas, about 30 miles northwest of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The crash ignited a brush fire, making it difficult for firefighters and emergency personnel to get to the crash site.

Bryant’s wife Vanessa was not on board, according to reports. The couple have four daughters, including an infant.

Bryant, an 18-time All-Star, won five NBA championships during his 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Bryant retired as the third-leading score in NBA history in 2016.

Nicknamed “The Black Mamba,” Bryant is generally regarded as one of the best players in league history because of his all-around game.

Bryant, whose #8 and #24 jersey numbers were both retired by the Lakers, lead the league in scoring twice, won the Most Valuable Player award in 2008 and was selected to the NBA’s All-Defensive team 12 times.

All five people aboard the chopper were killed. No other information about the victims’ identities was immediately available
