Back in the 70’s, Soul Train was breaking down racial barriers and bringing the audience the richness of funky and groovy music. Don Cornelius, Soul Train’s host, soon became an icon in the society and a lot of people remember growing up watching his show. But, early Wednesday, Soul Train’s Don Cornelius was found dead.

Apparently Don Cornelius committed suicide. Los Angeles Police Department officers found his body after a shooting was reported at the star’s Mulholland Drive home at around 4 a.m. Los Angeles County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said that Don Cornelius was pronounced dead of a self inflicted gunshot wound about an hour later at Cedars Sinai Medical Center.
