Lee Thompson Young, who played Cyborg on the CW's Smallville, has reportedly been found dead in his apartment. TMZ reports he was found by his landlord with a single gunshot wound that appears self-inflicted. His publicist later confirmed that the actor did in fact end his own life.

Young, 29 years old, found early success on the Disney Channel's The Famous Jett Jackson before moving to play the superheroic Justice Leaguer Cyborg, a cybernetically-enhanced hero. More recently, he appeared regularly on TNT's Rizzoli and Isles.
