Coroner’s officials confirmed today that 29-year-old actor Lee Thompson Young — best known for his starring role on Disney Channel’s “The Famous Jett Jackson” — committed suicide by shooting himself inside his North Hollywood apartment.

Police found the actor dead around 8 a.m. Monday after being called to his apartment in the 5000 block of Tujunga Avenue.

Young had been appearing on the TNT show “Rizzoli & Isles,” but failed to show up for work Monday, prompting staffers to call his landlord, TMZ reported.
