Basketball legend Kobe Bryant is among nine people who died in a helicopter crash in the wealthy Southern California residential neighborhood of Calabasas, ABC News has confirmed.

Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, died alongside her father, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement.

There were no survivors in the crash around 10 a.m. local time Sunday, fire officials said in a press conference. The names of the other victims, which includes six additional passengers and the pilot, will not be publicly identified until next-of-kin are notified, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva told reporters.

“God bless their souls,” Villanueva said, adding that members from the coroner’s office are on their way to assist in the recovery of the remains.
