Found unconscious after cardiac arrest.  Has since been taken off life support, so says TMZ.

Still alive, but barely, apparently:

UPDATE: Citing a source, Variety reported at 1:30 p.m. PT that Petty had died. However, the LAPD has clarified that a statement ‘inadvertently provided’ incorrect information to media sources. Variety will continue to monitor the situation and provide the most accurate information possible amid conflicting reports. TMZ reported that Petty is “clinging to life support.”

It's from a crummy movie and probably not his best song but my favourite of his is "Walls". Feels appropriate.

It's official now. The family released a statement.
