Kobe Bryant, the Los Angeles Lakers superstar who won five championships with the team and was often compared to Michael Jordan, died Sunday in a helicopter crash. He was 41.

Bryant was a passenger on board a helicopter that crashed in the L.A. Country suburb of Calabasas.

TMZ first reported the news.

Bryant was allegedly traveling in his own private helicopter when it crashed. Four other people were killed.

Investigators are trying to determine the cause of the fatal crash.

An 18-time NBA All-Star, Bryant was widely considered to be one of the greatest basketball players of all-time. He was voted the NBA’s Most Valuable Player in 2008 and went on to win two gold medals with the USA Men’s Basketball team in 2008 and 2012.

In 2018, Bryant won an Academy Award for his short film, “Dear Basketball.”
