Former UNC President Bill Friday says Andy Griffith died this morning in Dare County. Friday, who is a close friend of the actor, confirmed that to WITN News.
Friday tells us the 86-year-old actor died at his Dare County home around 7:00 a.m. this morning.
Griffith attended UNC Chapel Hill where he earned a degree in Music. According to IMDb.com, Griffith was a regular on the Ed Sullivan show in the 1950's.
His legacy role, which earned him the title of "America's Favorite Sheriff"on "The Andy Griffith" show, set in fictional Mayberry, put North Carolina on the map in the entertainment industry. The show ran from 1960-1968, propelling a handful of spin-off programs. Griffith also produced and starred in the television series "Matlock."
Griffith received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2005 from President George W. Bush.

The sheriff says he is checking to get more information on the condition of the person who the ambulance was called for.
The 86-year-old Griffith lives on Roanoke Island, not far from the Lost Colony, a play he performed in right after high school.
Griffith was born in Mount Airy, and is most known for his role as "Andy Taylor" from 1960 to 1968.
