Marin County Police in California said he was pronounced dead at his home shortly after officials responded to an emergency call around noon local time.

The Marin County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call from Williams’ residence on Monday at 11:55 a.m. reporting the actor had been found unconscious and was not breathing. The paramedics arrived shortly thereafter at 12 p.m. and pronounced him dead at 12:02 p.m.

Williams was last seen alive by his wife at 10 p.m. on Sunday.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 12, at the Marin County Coroner’s Office.

The apparent cause of death was suicide by asphyxiation, authorities said. According to his publicist, Williams had been battling severe depression and spent time in rehab as recently as July.

In a statement, Williams’ wife, Susan Schneider, said she was “utterly heartbroken”.

“This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken,” she said.

“On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”

President Barack Obama’s statement sent from the White House summed it up:

Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien — but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit. He made us laugh. He made us cry. He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most — from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalized on our own streets.

Fellow actors took to Twitter to express deep sorrows on the death of the popular actor.

“I could not be more stunned by the loss of Robin Williams, mensch, great talent, acting partner, genuine soul,” said Steve Martin.

“Terrible, terrible news,” Fred Willard tweeted. “Comedy has lost a great man.”

“Shocked by the news of Robin Williams passing. Rest in peace my friend,” said Albert Brooks.

Rest in peace, Robin Williams, knowing you made millions of people smile.
