R.I.P. Ricard Jeni

Richard Jeni, a well known and repected standup comedian, died of a gunshot wound in an apparent suicide, police said Sunday.
CNN reports: "Police found the 45-year-old comedian alive but gravely injured in a West Hollywood home when they responded to a call Saturday morning from Jeni's girlfriend, Los Angeles Police Officer Norma Eisenman said.

Eisenman said the caller told police: 'My boyfriend shot himself in the face.'

Jeni died at a nearby hospital.

Eisenman said suicide had not been officially confirmed and the investigation was continuing.
An autopsy on Jeni would be done Monday, said Lt. Fred Corral from the investigation division of the coroner's office."
How awful. This comes as quite as shock to everyone and he will no doubt be missed.
