Yesterday, we reported the tragic news that David Wilson, a songwriter and the boyfriend of country singer Mindy McCready, had died on January 13 at the age of 34. Today, People reports the even more tragic news that he died of an apparent suicide.

"It was a self-inflicted gunshot wound," says Mindy’s representative, Kat Atwood. "Now they're working on funeral arrangements and figuring out where to go from here."

Atwood also reports that the singer is being comforted by family and friends, many of whom drove up to Arkansas from Florida. "It's a very sad time, but she has support in place."
