SEATTLE (AP) -- The King County medical examiner's office says Seattle hip-hop artist Freddy E has died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

On the day he died, he wrote a series of tweets on his Twitter account. In one, he wrote: "If there's a God then He's calling me back home. This barrel never felt so good next to my dome. It's cold & I'd rather die than live alone." He also wrote that he loved his mom and dad. His final tweet reads: "I'm sorry."

The 22-year-old also was known for his edgy YouTube program "Jerk TV," which had thousands of subscribers and millions of video views.

Medical Examiner's Office investigator Nick Fletcher says suicide is the presumed cause of death, but an autopsy would be performed Monday.

I will make it short for the two that commented on my remarks. From your comments, neither of you are Christians. I am a Christian and hope to die as one. I believe in God, His son Jesus and look to the day of Jesus coming back to earth. You will never die but sleep until the day of resurrection, when all believers in Christ shall rise. I feel sorry for the family and they have my deepest sympathy.

I can't believe the number of rasist and heartless posts on this story. Makes me wonder if there is any hope for the human race when a suicide is celebrated like some have here.
