11:06 AM PDT -- A man just came out of the house appearing extremely distraught ... and he is now talking with law enforcement.

0314_divider_graphic

Cops in Oceanside, CA are investigating a possible shooting involving former NFL star Junior Seau ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We spoke with an investigator in the coroner's office .. who told us they got a call to respond to the scene ... though the details surrounding the situation are still unclear.

Cops are currently at a residence where 43-year-old Junior is believed to be staying.

People in law enforcement are telling us Junior Seau is dead ... but we are unable to confirm that right now.

Usually someone is dead when they call the coroner.

Seau is only 43? That makes me almost 2 years older than him. I thought it was sad when players younger than me started playing in the NFL but now that they are passing before me it is even weirder.

Wow.

I still remember that fumble/interception he got off Elway at the end of the 1994 season opener when the Broncos were driving for the win.

He was a helluva player.

RIP, I hated playing against him but respected him. I remember his retirement speech (the first one) he was so passionate about the game and life. Sad to see him go this way.
