Don Cornelius' Death Ruled A Suicide

The Los Angeles coroner's office ruled on Tuesday that former "Soul Train" host and creator Don Cornelius
 died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Cornelius, 75, was found shot at his Mulholland Drive home last Wednesday (February 1) morning by his son.

According to the Associated Press, the Los Angeles County Coroner's office made the suicide determination after conducting an autopsy on Cornelius' body on Friday. A final report will be issued pending the results of toxicology tests, which could take several weeks. After responding to a call from Cornelius' son, police were quickly able to rule out foul play in the host's death.
