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.
The Seattle Times reports Frederick E. Buhl died Saturday in Renton, a small urban city about 10 miles south of Seattle.

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 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.
I lost some faith in humanity today.
