Hollywood pays tribute to  Michael K Williams |
Spike Lee, Mariah Carey and Kerry Washington have led the tributes to The Wire star Michael K Williams following his death aged 54. The actor, who memorably played shotgun-wielding stick-up man Omar Little on HBO's acclaimed crime drama, was found dead at his home in Brooklyn on Monday, police in New York said. No cause of death was given.

A representative confirmed the news, describing his death as an "insurmountable loss". Tributes have flooded in for the star, who as well as his role on The Wire earned fame and plaudits for playing Albert "Chalky" White on the HBO series Boardwalk Empire.

Chart-topping singer Mariah Carey shared smiling pictures of her and Williams together. She wrote: "A beautiful soul, a beautiful person, I'll miss you always. Thank you for blessing us with your talent."
