Lee Thompson Young, who played Jett Jackson in The Famous Jett Jackson on the Disney Channel, as well as Rizzoli’s partner on Angie Harmon‘s Rizzoli & Isles, is dead. He shot himself. Here’s the report from TMZ:

Sources tell us Young’s body was discovered with a gunshot wound that appears to be self-inflicted.

Young currently appears in the TNT show “Rizzoli & Isles” — and we’re told when he didn’t show up to work this morning, staffers called the landlord of Young’s L.A. home to check up on the actor. We’re told … when the landlord opened the door, he discovered Young’s body.

Lee’s publicist confirms the actor killed himself, telling TMZ, “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 be truly missed.”

He was 29.
