MALIBU, Calif. (AP) — The son of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been found dead of a possible drug overdose in Malibu.

Los Angeles County coroner’s Lt. Larry Dietz says 32-year-old Scott Ashley Sterling was found dead shortly after 11:30 p.m. Tuesday at a home on Pacific Coast Highway.

A county Sheriff’s Department statement confirms that Sterling is the son of the Clippers owner.

Dietz says the death appears to be accidental and it’s being investigated as a possible drug overdose. An autopsy will determine the exact cause of death.

Messages left for Sterling and a Clippers representative weren’t immediately returned.
