Authorities say Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith's brother has been shot to death in south Georgia.

The team on Monday confirmed that Smith's younger brother, Brian, was killed.

Police in Valdosta, Georgia, say in a police report that the 25-year-old man was killed in a homicide, but did not name the victim.

Police said officers responded to a residence Sunday evening after a reported shooting, and found the victim dead with a gunshot wound.

No arrests were reported. Valdosta police Lt. Adam Bembry was urging anyone with information about the case to contact police.

Valdosta is about 120 miles northwest of Jacksonville.
