Actor and syndicated radio host Gerard "Jerry" Doyle has died in Las Vegas at age 60.

Clark County coroner John Fudenberg said Thursday that an autopsy was scheduled, and it will take several weeks and toxicology tests to determine a cause of death.

Las Vegas police were called around 4 p.m. Wednesday after Doyle was found dead at home in northwest Las Vegas. Officer Laura Meltzer says the death didn't appear suspicious.

As an actor, Doyle was best-known as Michael Garibaldi in the 1990s science-fiction television show "Babylon 5."

In recent years, his self-titled radio show aired on Talk Radio Network and, in Las Vegas, weekday afternoons on AM radio station KDWN.

A post on Doyle's verified Facebook page stated, "The family of Jerry Doyle is sad to announce Jerry’s passing. The cause of death is unknown at this time."

Show producer Brad Silvers noted that Doyle also founded the conservative-Libertarian opinion blog EpicTimes.com.

Talk Radio Network Enterprises CEO Mark Masters stated, "I am stunned and saddened by the news of Jerry's sudden death. He was a dear friend and a prince of a human being. We have worked together for over 12 years, and no host was more loyal at my side."

Talk Radio Network and America's Talk Network said they will continue to produce and distribute "The Jerry Doyle Show" using guest hosts.
