Very sad news... The name sake of Dr. Dre, Andre Young Jr., was found dead by his mother over the weekend at his home in Woodland Hills, California, according to the Los Angeles County coroner's office. He was just 20 years old.
Andre Young Jr. was out with friends Friday night and his mother later found him "unresponsive in bed" when she tried to wake him early Saturday morning, coroner's spokesman Ed Winter told Reuters. She immediately called paramedics, who later pronounced Young dead at the scene.

"Dr. Dre is mourning the loss of his son Andre Young Jr. Please respect his family's grief and privacy at this time," said a statement released by his spokeswoman.

An autopsy was conducted and the cause of death is still pending toxicology and other tests, which may take six weeks or more, Winter said. [SOURCE]
Sending thoughts and prayers to the Young Family.
