It is very sad for us to report that Gary Coleman has died as the result of injuries he suffered earlier this week.
We’ve learned from TMZ and The Huffington Post that Gary’s wife, Shannon, made the decision to pull life support early this morning.
Coleman died at 12:05 PM MST. He died of a intracranial hemorrhage.
Family members and close friends were at Coleman’s side when life support was pulled.
He was 42.

Gary Coleman has slipped into a coma and is on life support in a Salt Lake City hospital, his spokesman says.
Spokesman John Alcantar told KABC that Coleman, 42, suffered severe bleeding in his skull at his home south of Salt Lake City on Wednesday. He was rushed to a hospital and was conscious and lucid by mid- morning Thursday, but by afternoon, his condition worsened and was slipping in and out of consciousness.
ABC News says he suffered intracranial hemorrhage.
The Diff’rent Strokes star has had a history of health problems. He has been battling kidney disease since his childhood, and also had heart surgery last fall.
Coleman, who was hospitalized earlier this year having having a seizure on the set of The Insider, lives in Santaquin, about 55 miles south of Salt Lake City.
