Los Angeles authorities say the attorney-husband of actress Catherine Bach has been found dead in an apparent suicide.

Coroner's office operations chief Craig Harvey says entertainment attorney Peter Lopez died Friday at his home in the Encino Hills.

Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter says a neighbor reporting hearing a gunshot and someone at the home found Lopez's body.

A spokesman for Lopez's law firm says he was Michael Jackson's music attorney until a couple of years before the pop star died.

Bach's publicist, Steve Rohr, says the Lopez family has suffered a "tragic personal loss."

Bach played Daisy Duke in the 1980s TV series "The Dukes of Hazzard." She and Lopez had two young daughters.
