Sawyer Sweeten played Ray Romano’s son on the show. He was 19.

“This morning a terrible family tragedy has occurred,” Sweeten’s sister reportedly said in a statement. “We are devastated to report that our beloved brother, son, and friend, Sawyer Sweeten, took his own life. He was weeks away from his 20th birthday. At this sensitive time, our family requests privacy and we beg of you to reach out to the ones you love.”

Most stories reporting Sweeten’s death cite the website Radar Online, which apparently broke the sad story:

A source very close to the situation tells Radar, “Sawyer was visiting family in Texas. He went on the front porch and killed himself with a gunshot to his head.”

The source tells Radar, “Sawyer’s entire family is absolutely devastated by this tragedy.”
