An entertainment attorney who once represented Michael Jackson was found fatally shot Friday outside his home in Encino.
Peter Lopez's body was discovered around 11:30 a.m. after the Los Angeles Police Department received a call reporting shots fired, reports Los Angeles Times.
According to LAPD sources Lopez's wife, "Dukes of Hazzard" actress Catherine Bach, told police that her husband had shot himself. Law enforcement officials said they have not determined an exact cause of death but are investigating it as a suicide.
Lopez in 2007 was appointed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to serve on the State Athletic Commission.
He was also a noted attorney known for representing musicians, including members of the Eagles.
Lopez also acted as co-producer on the film Selena which starred Jennifer Lopez and chronicled the life of murdered Mexican-American singer Selena Quintanilla-Perez.
