LOS ANGELES (CNN) -- Actor William Shatner found his wife Nerine Kidd, 40, floating dead in the pool at their Hollywood Hills home late Monday night, police have confirmed to CNN.

Officer Barbara Carranza of the Los Angeles Police Department said Shatner made the discovery at 10 p.m. Pacific time (1 a.m. EDT).

The cause of death is being investigated by the Los Angeles Corner's office.

According to Carranza, Shatner came home and upon finding his wife in the pool, immediately called police. He was told to try to resuscitate her. When paramedics arrived at the scene around 10:30 p.m., Kidd was lying by the side of the pool.

The paramedics pronounced her dead at the scene.

Shatner and Kidd were wed in November 1997.

Shatner is best known as Capt. James T. Kirk on the science fiction television show "Star Trek." He also appeared in several "Star Trek" movies and the 1980s television police drama "T.J. Hooker."
