KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WIBW) — The Kansas City Chiefs welcomed the family of slain Washburn defensive back Dwane Simmons to their practice on Wednesday.

Afterwards, Chiefs' Head Coach Andy Reid and General Manager Brett Veach presented Simmons' parents, Navarro Simmons and Chaquilla Everett, with a jersey with the junior Ichabod's name and the #21 he wore while playing at Yager Stadium.

A picture of their visit was shared by the team’s Community & Digital Media Producer Matt McCullen.

A native of nearby Lee's Summitt, Missouri, Simmons was killed in an April shooting in the street near SW 13th and Lane St. just hours after his teammate and friend Corey Ballentine was drafted by the New York Giants.

No arrests have been made in his killing.

Ballentine has since recovered from his injuries and reported to the Giants' training camp.
