Authorities, media, and fans gathered at Paisley Park this morning in response to a medical call that proved, sadly, to be the news of music legend Prince’s death at age 57.

Last week, Prince was reportedly treated for dehydration in Illinois after an unscheduled stop of a plane he was on while returning from a performance in Georgia. He recovered and hosted a dance party at Paisley Park on Saturday.
