A former reptile dear, Jeff Johnson, who appeared on season one of Tiger King, has died by suicide at 58.

Johnson was in front of his wife when he shot himself after an argument with her in their garage on September 8.

A report of the incident, disclosed by Daily Mail, Tuesday, cited the Oklahoma City Police Department and incident report.

According to the incident report, Johnson’s wife immediately called 911 and her husband still had a pulse when local authorities arrived. He was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.

The couple’s children were home at the time of the incident, according to police. The police said that Johnson was not known to have had any mental illnesses. Johnson was seen discussing Carole Baskin on the fourth episode of the hit Netflix series.

His death occurred just days after Tiger King personality Erik Cowie was found dead as a result of excessive alcohol use.

Officials with the New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner told TMZ that the reality star, who was found dead on September 3 in a friend’s Brooklyn apartment, died as the result of acute and chronic alcohol use, in a natural manner.
