So sad! Former Disney star and Smallville actor Lee Thompson Young was found dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot in his North Hollywood apartment Monday, his manager said.

Young, 29, was best known for his leading role in the Disney series “The Famous Jett Jackson.”He was found unresponsive with a bullet wound to the head by Los Angeles cops about 9 a.m., a law enforcement source told the Daily News.

Cops were called to do a welfare check after Young missed a call time on the set of his current show, the TNT police drama “Rizzoli & Isles,” the source said.

“It is with great sadness that I announce that Lee Thompson Young tragically took his own life this morning,” his longtime manager Jonathan Baruch said in a statement.

“Lee was more than just a brilliant young actor. He was a wonderful and gentle soul who will be truly missed,” Baruch said. “We ask that you please respect the privacy of his family and friends as this very difficult time.”

Paramedics declared Young dead at the scene, the law enforcement source said.

    People claim their lives because the system of this world which is operated by the devil tells them theres no eternity and no God to account to. The man who death scares has a conscious or unconscious knowledge that there is Heaven and theres a hell. I pray God comforts his loved ones,as for him the devil has him just where he wanted him. I hope young people would come to this truth.
