One of Prince's half siblings has passed away.

Alfred Jackson, 66 years old, died at his home on Thursday morning in Kansas City, Missouri.

According to a TMZ report, Jackson was found unresponsive by his brother around 10:30 a.m. 

Police believe he died of natural causes, per the website.

That afternoon, Prince's sister Tyka Nelson announced Jackson's death on Facebook:

As USA Today notes, Jackson and Prince shared a mother; she had Jackson during her first marriage.

He was one of six Prince heirs, now four half siblings and Prince's sister Tyka.
