Actor Lance Reddick, who was best known for his role as a no-nonsense police chief on the acclaimed television series "The Wire" and for his work in the "John Wick" action-film series, died on Friday at age 60, his publicist said.

TMZ reported that Reddick was found dead around 9:30 a.m. Friday in his Studio City home. His cause of death remains unknown.

Recent social media posts appeared to show Reddick in good health and spirits, with his last Instagram post showing him smiling with his dogs inside his home.
