The Wire actor Michael K Williams has died at the age of 54, police in New York say. Williams, who was known for his role as Omar Little in the hit TV series, was found by officers at his Brooklyn home at around 2pm on Monday.
His death is being investigated as a possible drug overdose, the Associated Press reports, citing the New York Police Department (NYPD).
When contacted by Sky News, an NYPD official said they couldn't confirm the presence of drugs and that the medical examiner would confirm Williams' cause of death in due course.
The multiple Emmy nominee earned nods for his roles in Bessie, The Night Of, When They See Us and, this year, HBO's Lovecraft Country.Read more on msn.com
