Lee Thompson Young's death certificate indeed reveals the actor died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. TMZ reports that Young used a handgun to take his own life.
The former star of Disney's The Famous Jett Jackson and cast member of Rizzoli & Isles was found dead in his Hollywood apartment on August 19 after concerned colleagues from his TNT show urged his landlord to search his apartment when he didn't show up for work. Young was 29 when he died.
Young's family and friends are, according to TMZ, still struggling to understand why the promising young actor took his own life, though they did tell law enforcement that he had "depression issues." His publicist confirmed the death was a suicide.
