Police reports are now saying that Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell hung himself after the band’s Detroit concert on Wednesday night.

The Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office has released a statement saying Chris Cornell took his own life.

The statement reads:

The Medical Examiner has completed the autopsy on 52-year-old Chris Cornell, the Soundgarden musician who died last night in Detroit. The cause of death has been determined as suicide by hanging. A full autopsy report has not yet been completed. There is no additional information at this time.

Cornell appeared in fine form on Wednesday after arriving in Detroit for the show evening tweeting: “#Detroit finally back to Rock City!!!! @soundgarden#nomorebullshit”

To date there has been no statement from the surviving Soundgarden members.
