In the report released Tuesday, U-T San Diego says Seau's girlfriend told police she last saw him alive that day at 7:45 a.m.
At about 9:35 a.m., two officers responded to the home and were led to a bedroom where Seau was found with a gunshot wound in the upper chest. He did not have a pulse.
The report says two Oceanside lifeguards arrived and attempted to revive Seau before paramedics arrived and pronounced him dead at 9:43 a.m.Junior Seau the 8th player from the 1994 Chargers to die
The death has been ruled a suicide. A final autopsy report is pending.
U-T San Diego says the report said there were no signs of forced entry or a struggle at Seau's house, and no suicide note was found.
Last week, Seau was buried in his hometown and thousands of fans attended a public memorial service at Qualcomm Stadium, where the hard-hitting, fist-pumping linebacker starred for 13 seasons.
