After a prolonged standoff, SWAT teams entered the house early on Saturday morning and found the suspect "unresponsive". Honeycutt then barricaded himself inside a residence for hours, according to police. Several residents in the area had been evacuated as a precaution.
Cops later found out it was Tyler's own mother who had phoned authorities saying her son was "acting erratically".
Honeycutt's agent, Aaron Mintz, confirmed Honeycutt's death to Khimki on Saturday morning.
Authorities have not yet released the name of the man.

"No officers were injured during the officer-involved shooting", sergeant Hector Guzman said Friday night, when Honeycutt was believed to be alive based on text messages.
The former second-round draft pick of the Kings allegedly shot at officers, who returned fire. The Los Angeles Police Department later stated in a post on Twitter that Honeycutt "appears to have sustained injuries consistent with a self-inflicted gunshot wound".
Investigators from the department's Force Investigation Division will look into the incident. He went to the Kings in 2011 National Basketball Association draft, but only played 24 National Basketball Association games before continuing his career overseas.
He played brief spells for the Reno Bighorns before moving to the Houston Rockets. Honeycutt was only 27. He spent time with EuroCup team BC Khimki (2014-15) and EuroLeague's Khimki Moscow Region (2015-16, 17-18) and Anadolu Efes (2016-17).
