Mindy McCready has been found dead from an apparent suicide.

According to reports, the country music singer shot and killed herself Sunday evening.

“A close family friend of Mindy McCready has informed me that the country singer has committed suicide," Stacy McCloud, a reporter at FOX 17 in Nashville tweeted.

“The Mindy McCready suicide I told you about has now been confirmed from 4 different sources. A statement from the family is in the works," she tweeted a short time later.

E! News has also confirmed McCready's death with a family friend.

Things have been rough lately for the troubled singer. Her boyfriend, David Wilson, committed suicide just over a month ago. On February 6, her two children were removed from her home and she was committed to a treatment facility for mental-health and drug and alcohol abuse evaluation.
