TikTok comedian Huey Haha, whose real name was Hieu Minh Ngoc Ha, died by suicide, the Sacramento County Coroner's Office confirmed this week. The rising social media star and comedian's cause of death was revealed in a report from the Sacramento County Coroner's Office this week, nearly four months after Huey was found dead by medics during an emergency call to his home. According to the report, per PEOPLE, Huey died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Oct. 25. He was 22.

Shortly after news of Huey's death broke in late October, The Sun reported that the social media star was found unresponsive by medics. First responders responded to an emergency "medical aid call" at Huey's Sacramento, California home and attempted to save the 22-year-old, but they were unsuccessful. A police report said the "subject was pronounced deceased at the scene by responding medical personnel," adding that "officers conducted a death investigation and a coroner responded to take over the investigation." An investigation into Huey's death found nothing unusual or suspicious, and there was no concern of foul play, according to The Sun. Amid the release of his cause of death, the coroner /confirm/ied, "based on the circumstances and cause of death, the manner will be listed as Suicide."
