Autopsy says Calif. pastor Rick Warren's son died of self-inflicted gunshot wound

Authorities say autopsy results show that the son of popular megachurch pastor Rick Warren died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino said Monday that 27-year-old Matthew Warren died at about 10 a.m. on Friday.

Amormino says the ruling was also based on evidence found at the scene.

To whom the weapon belonged to is still unclear. The Warrens said in an email on Saturday that their son struggled with deep depression and suicidal thoughts.

The elder Warren founded Saddleback Church in 1980, and watched it grow to 20,000 members and several campuses. In 2002, he published the multimillion-selling book "The Purpose Driven Life."
