TOMAHAWK, Wis. (WSAU) -- A man died Saturday after collapsing at a Lincoln County hunting camp.

Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department deputies and Tomahawk Emergency Medical Services were called to the Wildwood Avenue cabin at 4:07 p.m. Saturday.

50-year-old Jay Michael Leggett is a former Tomahawk area resident who was back in the area from Los Angeles, California for hunting season. He had returned from the woods on an all terrain vehicle, stepped off, and collapsed. Family members located him and performed CPR until paramedics arrived, but Leggett could not be revived.

Leggett appeared in 26 episodes of the T-V show "In Living Color," plus one-time appearances in several T-V shows including "E-R" and "N-Y-P-D Blue."  Leggett also co-wrote and appeared in the 2006 film "Employee of the Month."  He also produced a documentary about Wisconsin's deer hunting culture entitled "To the Hunt."  

No foul play is suspected.
