According to L.A. Weekly, the Los Angeles County Coroner has reported that Andre Young Jr., son of rapper and super-producer Dr. Dre, was found dead at his Woodland Hills home Saturday morning.

"Dr. Dre is mourning the loss of his son Andre Young Jr. Please respect his family's grief and privacy at this time," a statement from the Dre camp said on Tuesday.

According to Assistant Chief Ed Winter, the 20-year-old had been out the night before until 5:30 a.m. Young's mother went to check on him in his bedroom around 10 a.m. and found him unresponsive. She immediately called 911. An ambulance arrived to the scene and Young was later pronounced dead. The cause of death is unknown and a toxicology report is pending.
