Anton Yelchin, known for his roles in Star Trek and Alpha Dog died early Sunday morning in Los Angeles, ET can confirm. He was 27.

The LAPD's Valley Traffic Division confirmed TMZ's first report of the death. According to the LAPD, Yelchin's friends grew suspicious when he didn't meet them for a rehearsal on Saturday. When they arrived at his house at 1 a.m. local time, they found him pinned between his car, a mailbox, and a security gate.

"The speculation is that he got out of the car and it was in neutral and rolled back on him," the LAPD tells ET.

Family and friends have been notified. ET has also reached out to Yelchin's reps.
