Los Angeles: “Top Gun” director Tony Scott has committed suicide by jumping off a bridge here.
According to witnesses, Tony jumped off the bridge in San Pedro Sunday afternoon. The Los Angeles Times earlier reported that a suicide note was found in Scott’s car. However, the paper later clarified that it was just a note listing the contact information.
A suicide note was later found in Tony’s office, but its contents were not revealed.
The Los Angeles County coroner’s office confirmed the director’s identity later in the evening.
Tony, brother of director Ridley Scott, wielded the megaphone for “Top Gun”, “Enemy of the State”, “Beverly Hills Cop II” and “Crimson Tide”.
