Legendary rock musician Tom Petty on Sunday suffered full cardiac arrest at the age of 66, TMZ reports.
An earlier report from CBS indicated Petty has died as a result of a heart attack, but “still clinging to life.” CBS has deleted the post saying Petty died.
CBS News has since deleted the tweet about Petty’s death, citing LAPD.
