The actor died Sunday at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Fla., the local sheriff’s department confirmed.
TMZ, who was first to publish the news, reports that authorities responded to the venue around 4 p.m. after hotel security found Saget unresponsive in his room. The sheriff’s department said in a press release that Saget was pronounced deceased at the scene and detectives found no sign of foul play.
A cause of death has not yet been confirmed.
Saget’s representatives released a statement from his family to Access Hollywood, sharing sorrow and shock over his loss and what they’ll cherish most about his memory.
