The Carver County Sheriff’s Office says they were dispatched on a medical call at Paisley Park Studios at 9:43 a.m. When deputies arrived on scene, they found an unresponsive man in an elevator. First responders performed CPR but were unable to revive him.

He was pronounced dead at 10:07 a.m. and identified as Prince Rogers Nelson.

Carver County officials say they are investigating the circumstances of his death. An autopsy is planned for Friday.

Shortly after noon, Yvette Noel-Schure, a publicist for the reclusive musician, confirmed Prince’s death at his home studio in Chanhassen’s Paisley Park.

“It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57,” Noel-Schure said in a written statement. “There are no further details as to the cause of death at this time.”

No other information surrounding Prince’s death was released.
