Police in New York and Puerto Rico have arrested four men who allegedly sold the drugs that actor Michael K Williams took before his overdose death.

Williams, most famous for his role as Omar on HBO’s The Wire, was found dead in his Brooklyn flat in September 2021.

The four men are accused of narcotics conspiracy.

US police say they sold drugs laced with fentanyl, a synthetic opioid blamed for thousands of drug deaths.

A medical examiner has ruled that the 54-year-old’s death was an accident.
