Authorities Disavow Report of Tom Petty’s Death

LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) issued a statement on Monday disavowing any knowledge about the condition of rock star Tom Petty, who was hospitalized following a heart attack.

CBS News had earlier cited LAPD as the source for a report that the 66-year-old Petty had died.

“The LAPD has no information about the passing of singer Tom Petty. Initial information was inadvertently provided to some media sources. However, the LAPD has no investigative role in this matter. We apologize for any inconvenience in this reporting,” the department said.

TMZ, a Web site specializing in celebrity news, was the first to report that Petty, a presence on the music scene for four decades, was found unconscious and in cardiac arrest at his Malibu home late Sunday.

The leader of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers was taken to UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica, which has declined to provide any information about his condition.
