(Newser) – Former child star Sawyer Sweeten, who was still a baby when he made his debut on Everybody Loves Raymond, has killed himself a few weeks before his 20th birthday. Sweeten, who played Geoffrey Barone during the show's nine-year run, was visiting family in Texas and "went on the front porch and killed himself with a gunshot to his head," a source tells Radar. His twin brother, Sullivan, and older sister Madylin played his siblings on the CBS comedy, which came to an end just short of a decade ago. "At this time I would like to encourage everyone to reach out to the ones you love. Let them have no doubt of what they mean to you," Madylin wrote on her Facebook page. The twins were just 16 months old when Raymond began in 1996, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
