Child star Sawyer Sweeten has died after committing suicide.

Sawyer is best known for playing Geoffrey Barone in Everybody Loves Raymond, in which he starred alongside his twin brother Sullivan as Michael Barone and older sister Madylin as Ally Barone.

US media is reporting that the 19-year-old actor shot himself on the front porch of his home in Texas, although this is not confirmed.

In a statement, Sawyer’s family said the star "took his own life".  It read: "This morning a terrible family tragedy has occurred. We are devastated to report that our beloved brother, son, and friend, Sawyer Sweeten, took his own life. He was weeks away from his 20th birthday. "At this sensitive time, our family requests privacy and we beg of you to reach out to the ones you love."
