The star of Disney’s “The Famous Jett Jackson” was found dead inside his North Hollywood home with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His publicist issued the statement, “ it is with great sadness that I announce that Lee Thompson Young tragically took his own life this morning. Lee was more than just a brilliant young actor, he was a wonderful and gentle soul who will truly be missed,” according to TMZ.

29 year old Young was an actor on the TNT show Rizzoli & Isles when he didn’t show up at work on Monday morning. At that point, staffers called his landlord and his landlord found his body.

She offers her condolences to his family and friends and fans, but especially to his mother.
