Music legend Tom Petty died late Monday night at age 66 after suffering a heart attack, but some media outlets, including CBS News and Rolling Stone, announced his death hours before he died because of erroneous information they got from the Los Angeles Police Department.

Rock and Roll Icon Tom Petty Dead at 66

  Rock and Roll Icon Tom Petty Dead at 66 The "American Girl" singer was found unconscious at his home Sunday. Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Tom Petty has died at a California hospital after being found unconscious at his home. He was 66.The "Runnin’ Down a Dream" singer was not breathing when he was found at his Malibu home Sunday.He had apparently suffered cardiac arrest and was taken to UCLA Santa Monica Hospital where he was put on a respirator, according to reports.Sources told TMZ that the musician was taken off life support Monday after it was found that he had no brain activity.

How did CBS, Rolling Stone, PEOPLE, The Huffington Post and Variety end up claiming Petty had died hours before he had? A report that the LAPD confirmed the singer' s death is inaccurate -- the L.A. County Sheriff' s Dept. handled the emergency.”

CBS News reported that Petty died on Monday afternoon, using “information obtained officially” from the LAPD. Shortly later, the LAPD tweeted that it had “no information about the passing” of Petty and “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 LAPD wrote in a follow-up tweet.

Officer Tony Im told the Associated Press that he could not rule out that someone in the department spoke to reporters, but the LAPD declined further comment when reach by Fox News. A CBS spokesman echoed the LAPD’s tweets in a statement about the situation.

“CBS News reported information obtained officially from the LAPD about Tom Petty. The LAPD later said it was not in a position to confirm information about the singer and that ‘initial information was inadvertently provided to some media sources.’ In that statement, the LAPD also apologized for ‘any inconvenience in this reporting,’” the rep said.

Tom Petty hospitalized; condition unclear

  Tom Petty hospitalized; condition unclear Rocker Tom Petty remains hospitalized in Los Angeles after being found unconscious and in cardiac arrest at his Malibu home Sunday, the Los Angeles County Fire Department told USA TODAY. Initial reports Monday from TMZ and CBS said Petty, 66, had died. CBS cited the Los Angeles Police Department as its source. LAPD later tweeted that this was an inadvertent mistake and that they had no investigative role in the case. Malibu is in the county of Los Angeles, not the city of Los Angeles.

Courtney Love, Talib Kweli, Kid Rock, Cyndi Lauper, Paul Stanley and Lin-Manuel Miranda were among the celebrities who posted messages about Petty’s death based on the premature report, according to the AP.

Petty’s daughter, Annakim Violette, singled out Rolling Stone, who cited CBS's confirmation in their report, even though CBS technically ran with the false information first. An Instagram message on an account widely attributed to Violette slammed Rolling Stone for prematurely killing her father.

“How dare you report that my father has died just to get press because your articles and photos are so dated,” Violette wrote. “This is my father not a celebrity. An artist and human being. F**k u.”

She also said the magazine is “dead” and it uses the “worst” artist for cover images because it’s “tabloid dog s**t.”

TMZ first broke the news that Petty was found unconscious and in full cardiac arrest on Sunday and noted on Monday that he “was not expect to live through the day.” TMZ was also the outlet to uncover that Petty was actually still alive when reports of his death had started to circulate.

Hours after the premature news of Petty’s death, his manager, Tony Dimitriades announced the singer’s authentic death in a statement.

“On behalf of the Tom Petty family we are devastated to announce the untimely death of our father, husband, brother, leader and friend Tom Petty. He suffered cardiac arrest at his home in Malibu in the early hours of this morning and was taken to UCLA Medical Center but could not be revived. He died peacefully at 8:40 p.m. PT surrounded by family, his bandmates and friends,” the statement said.

Rolling Stone did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
