Tony Scott, director of such Hollywood blockbusters as “Top Gun,” “Days of Thunder” and “Beverly Hills Cop II,” has died after jumping from a Los Angeles County Bridge.

Los Angeles County Coroner’s Lt. Joe Bale says Scott’s death Sunday is being investigated as a suicide.

Authorities say the 68-year-old Scott jumped from the Vincent Thomas Bridge spanning San Pedro and Terminal Island in Los Angeles.

U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Jennifer Osburn told the Daily Breeze a suicide note was found inside Scott’s black Toyota Prius, which was parked on one of the eastbound lanes of the bridge.
