Athletes voice opinions on the Alton Sterling shooting Sports figures from all walks of life chimed in on the death of the 37-year-old Baton Rouge man

Whether it was a simple tweet including the hashtag #AltonSterling, or a more vocal response to the death of Alton Sterling, who was killed by a Baton Rouge, Louisiana, police officer in front of a convenience store on Tuesday, athletes from multiple sports had something to say.

Per the owner of the convenience store, who considered Sterling his friend, the 37-year-old man was a regular, often selling CDs or DVDs in front of the store.

Following a press conference from Sterling’s family and one from the Baton Rouge police chief and mayor-president on Wednesday, this is the most up-to-date version of what we know.

Sports figures fell along the spectrum in terms of what they had to say:
