Brittany Murphy died Sunday morning, sources confirm after reports surfaced on gossip Web site TMZ.com. She was 32.

The report cites multiple sources claiming that she went into cardiac arrest and was pronounced dead at Cedars Sinai Medical Center.

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center spokeswoman Sally Stewart told the Associated Press that Murphy died at 10:04 a.m. Sunday. She would not provide a cause of death or any other information.

The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a call at 8 a.m. Sunday from a home that is listed as belonging to British screenwriter Simon Monjack, who is married to Murphy, spokesman Devon Gale said. Gale said one person was transported to a hospital.

Los Angeles police have opened an investigation into Murphy's death, officer Norma Eisenman said Sunday afternoon. Investigators have been dispatched to Murphy's home in the hills of West Hollywood.
