In January this year, a Facebook post by the band called P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. informed the world of the death of Jon Paul Steuer - an actor better known for playing Worf’s son Alexander Rozhenko in 1990's Star Trek: The Next Generation. The actor was 33-years-old  when he died. 

And now, the cause of his death has also been revealed, according to a report by The Blast. Ruling Paul Steuer's untimely loss as a suicide, reports on Monday confirmed that the former child actor had died of a gunshot wound to the head. The Star Trek actor died on January 1 in Portland.

The news was confirmed by The Portland Police Bureau as well, with Sgt. Chris Burley assuring that there was no foul play involved in Steuer's passing, according to People magazine

“It is with heavy hearts and saddened minds that we announce the passing of our dear friend and singer Jonny Jewels, AKA Jon Paul Steuer,” bandmates of the actor-turned-musician had shared in a heartfelt post back in January. Steuer, who is believed to have quit acting shortly after the cancellations of his ABC show 'Grace Under Fire', joined the band to focus on music. 

In addition to his Star Trek role, the former actor is also remembered for his appearance as a child actor on 'Little Giants'.
