“Before there was MTV, there was Soul Train,” explains Quincy Jones.

According to the New York Times, a 911 call was placed from Don Cornelius’ home at 4am Wednesday morning. When the paramedics arrived Mr. Cornileus was reportedly found lifeless on the floor with a gunshot wound to the head, which may have been self-inflicted.

“It was reported as a suicide, a self-inflicted wound,” the Assistant Chief Coroner of LA County tells a NY Times reporter.

Don Cornelius was pronounced dead at Sedar-Sinai Medical Center at 4:56am. Cornelius was 75 years old.

The case is still being investigated.
