An autopsy for legendary singer Prince will be conducted today, April 22, RadarOnline.com can confirm.

The 57-year-old, born Prince Rogers Nelson, was discovered unresponsive in an elevator at 9:43 a.m. Thursday morning, inside his infamous Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

"When deputies and medical personnel arrived, they found an unresponsive male in the elevator," Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson reported. "First responders attempted to provide lifesaving CPR but were unable to revive the victim."

According to newly released transcript of the 911 call made from the singer's home, those who discovered Prince were panicked and shocked.

"We're at Prince's house," a male caller told the dispatcher, adding that he did not know how Prince died and "the people are just distraught."

Prince was pronounced dead at 10:07 a.m.

The news followed a disturbing incident on April 15, when the "Purple Rain" singer's plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Illinois.

His reps insisted he simply had the flu, and the singer appeared on stage in Detroit on April 16.

Meanwhile, Prince's sister, Tyka Nelson, thanked fans who turned up at the Minneapolis estate to mourn his death, sharing that her brother "loved all of you. Thank you for loving him back."
