Sports fans around the world are struggling to find words to describe how they feel about the sudden death of retired U.S. basketball legend Kobe Bryant. Kobe Bryant was 41 years-old.

Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna were among nine killed Sunday in a helicopter crash in the hills outside Los Angeles. They reportedly were on their way to a basketball tournament for youngsters.

Bryant was known to use a helicopter from his home to games in Los Angeles to avoid the city's notoriously bad traffic.

The Los Angeles County sheriff's department says the investigation is ongoing with federal officials helping, but have so far given no information on what caused the crash, including whether foggy conditions Sunday morning played a part.

Sheriff Alex Villanueva refused to identify any of the victims, saying his office will wait until the coroners do their job. He called it “wholly inappropriate” that the entertainment news website TMZ reported the deaths before authorities could inform the families.
