    The boyfriend of country singer Mindy McCready killed himself Sunday night, according to the sheriff's office.

    Mindy McCready's boyfriend David Wilson appears to have committed suicide at his Arkansas home on Sunday night.

    The Cleburne County Sheriff's Office says that the 34-year-old record producer died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to the New York Daily News.

    Emergency personnel arrived at the scene at around 6:15 p.m. and transported Wilson to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    Why did Mindy McCready think she was expecting twins?

    Wilson was the father of the second of McCready's two sons, 9-month-old Zayne. The I'm Still Here artist also has a 6-year-old, Zander, with singer Billy McKnight.

    "Today, we mourn the loss of my life partner and my children's father, David Wilson," McCready said in a statement today. "David was my soulmate; he was a caregiver and guiding hand to our sons, Zander and Zayne. He was a precious gift from God to all of us and, yesterday, he returned home and is now with his mother and father.

    "David loved and he was loved. Those who knew and loved him will miss him; those who did not know David missed the opportunity to know a truly loving and gifted man."
