“Top Gun” Director Dies

Tony Scott

Tony Scott, who directed such blockbusters as “Top Gun” and “Beverly Hills Cop 2″, died Sunday after jumping off a bridge near Los Angeles.

The LAPD is investigating Scott’s death as a suicide, according to Lt. Joe Bale of the L.A. County Coroner’s office.

Several calls were made to 911 around 12:35 pm to report a jumper off the Vincent Thomas Bridge, which spans San Pedro and Terminal Island. Lt. Tim Nordquist of the LAPD said that divers from the Los Angeles Port Police retrieved Scott’s body several hours later and then turned over to the county coroner’s office.

Scott’s car was found parked on the bridge and contained a note listing contact information, according to the Los Angeles Times. Authorities later found a suicide note in his office.

Tony Scott was the brother of producer and director Ridley Scott.
