LA Times has reported that pop star Michael Jackson was pronounced dead by doctors this afternoon after arriving at a hospital in a deep coma.
Paramedics were called to a home on the 100 block of Carolwood Drive off Sunset Boulevard. The home is about 2 1/2 miles, about a six-minute drive, from UCLA Medical Center. An earlier version of this post incorrectly described the time to travel between the home and hospital as two minutes.]
The news comes as Jackson, 50, was attempting a comeback after years of tabloid headlines, most notably his trial and acquittal on child molestation charges.
