Denzelle Good’s brother killed in South Carolina drive-by shooting

The brother of Indianapolis Colts offense tackle, Denzelle Good, was tragically shot and killed Tuesday morning following an attempted armed robbery at his South Carolina mobile home.

Overton Deshan Good, 23, phoned police at approximately 8.25am to report that two individuals confronted him at the front door of his residence on Pleasant School Road in Gaffney.

Overton was able to prevent the robbery suspects from entering his mobile home, before they drove off for a brief time and returned – when one of them pulled out a gun out and opened fire.

Overton had been standing at the front door when he was fatally shot in the drive-by shooting.

Police said the suspects opened fire on a neighbor’s home, while it’s unclear whether anyone there was shot directly. Overton provided one of the suspect’s names before he was fatally shot.

Jermaine Jefferies, 20, was taken into custody and charged in his murder. Police are actively working to track down the remaining suspects. 

The Colts issued a condolence statement Tuesday evening regarding the sudden tragedy.

‘The Indianapolis Colts family is so saddened to learn of the passing of Overton Good, brother of our very own Denzelle Good, in South Carolina,’ the statement said.

‘This tragedy is unimaginable for his loved ones and friends, and our heartfelt prayers go out to Denzelle and his entire family during this trying time.’

Overton and other family members had just returned Monday from one of Denzelle’s games.

The family went to support the offensive tackle in Indianapolis Sunday when they played the Houston Texans, according to Fox Carolina. 

Overton and Denzelle both played high school football at Gaffney.

Denzelle, 27, had been drafted to the Colts in the seventh round back of 2015. 

He did not take part in the team’s walk-through practice Tuesday, and the team is giving him as much time as he needs away during this tragic time, according to ESPN.
