After the news of director/producer Tony Scott’s suicide broke, more information about the incident has been released.

Scott, who was 68, had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor, a source close to the family said. No other details were immediately available.

The director jumped from Vincent Thomas Bridge in Los Angeles Sunday around 12:30 p.m., and his body was recovered around 3 p.m. He left a note with contact information in his car and a suicide note and notes to his family in his office.

An autopsy is scheduled for today.

Scott has directed such films as Top Gun, Enemy of the State and Spy Game. He leaves behind his third wife Donna Scott, their two children and his brother, fellow director/producer Ridley Scott.
