Sawyer Sweeten — one of the twins from “Everybody Loves Raymond” — committed suicide Thursday morning, according to his sister.
19-year-old Sawyer reportedly shot himself while visiting family members in Texas. His older sister Madylin Sweeten — who was also on ‘Raymond’ — confirmed the death to TMZ, saying … “This morning a terrible family tragedy occurred. We are devastated to report that our beloved brother, son, and friend took his own life.”
Sawyer played Geoffrey Barone — one of Ray Romano‘s twin boys — on the series from 1996 to 2005. He not only co-starred with Madylin, but also his real life twin brother Sullivan.
His 20th birthday was just a few weeks away.
Madylin posted on Facebook on Thursday afternoon … “At this time I would like to encourage everyone to reach out to the ones you love. Let them have no doubt of what they mean to you.”
