The plane crash also caused a brush fire, according to NBC 4i. The flames reached about an acre.

The authorities have scheduled a 5 pm EST press conference with the media.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna — whose nickname is GiGi — were on board the helicopter when it went down, as they were traveling to a travel basketball tournament. Another parent and child was also on board.

His last appearance in the public eye was on Saturday night in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was there to see LeBron James pass him in scoring on the all-time list.

Sometime overnight, Bryant returned home to Los Angeles.

Bryant retired from the NBA in 2016. He departed the game with 33,643 points.

James — one of the Lakers two stars with Anthony Davis — now has 33,655.
