Sawyer Sweeten, the child star of hit US show Everybody Loves Raymond, has killed himself.

His family confirmed in a statement that the 19-year-old "took his own life" on Thursday morning.

He is reported by US media to have shot himself on the front porch of the family home in Texas.

Sawyer played Geoffrey Barone in the hit show, which also featured his twin brother Sullivan as Michael Barone and older sister Madylin as Ally Barone.

The show ran from 1996 - when the twin boys were just 16 months old - to 2005.

"This morning a terrible family tragedy has occurred," the family said in a statement.

"We are devastated to report that our beloved brother, son, and friend, Sawyer Sweeten, took his own life. He was weeks away from his 20th birthday.

"At this sensitive time, our family requests privacy and we beg of you to reach out to the ones you love."
