NBA Star Kobe Bryant Killed in Helicopter Crash, Officials Confirm

 Report Annapolis has independently confirmed that Kobe Bryant has died. A Calabasas City Spokesperson confirmed the reports just moments ago:

"It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of Kobe Bryant and four others in a helicopter crash in Calabasas.  The aircraft went down in a remote field off Las Virgenes around 10:00 this morning.  Nobody on the ground was hurt.  The FAA and NTSB are investigating."

Editor's Note:  Report Annapolis is actively trying to confirm reports that Bryant's 13 year old daugter was also killed in the crash.  This has yet to be confirmed. This article will be updated with more information as it is received. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of all those involved.
