Andy Garcia releases statement regarding Sean Taylor killing
Andy Garcia is paying a hero's tribute to Redskins Pro-Bowl safety Sean Taylor.
How is Andy Garcia involved in Sean Taylor's life you ask? Andy's neice, Jackie Garcia, was dating Taylor. Jackie was with Sean when their home was broken into. She reportedly hid in the bedroom with their 18-month-old daughter, also named Jackie, while Taylor, 24, went to investigate.
Andy released this statement singing Taylor's praises:
"His heroic action on that tragic night saved their life and is a testament to his humanity and courage," the Ocean's Thirteen star said in a statement to the Miami Herald. "His spirit will live forever, in our hearts and through the legacy of his achievements and the family he leaves behind.”
"Sean was known to many as an extraordinary athlete and unquestionable teammate,'' Andy Garcia, 51, added. "To those of us who had the good fortune to count him as a member of our extended family, we will always remember him as a caring and loving individual."
Cops have no suspects in the shooting and say that this is likely nothing more than a break-in/ robbery turned deadly.
