No foul play indicated,” a police source said. “No forced entry, the apartment was in order.

Williams was found dead by his nephew in the living room of his Kent Avenue pad in the luxury Williamsburg high-rise, sources said.

The Flatbush native — currently a 2021 Emmy Award nominee as best supporting actor forLovecraft Country— was famous for his role as Omar Little in the gritty TV series “El alambre,’’ and as Chalky White inBoardwalk Empire.’’

Williams had been open about his personal struggles with drugs through the years, including during the filming of “El alambre,” saying that getting so into the role of Little, who robs drug dealers, affected him in real life.

The acclaimed actor told NPR in 2016 that he once stumbled into a church in New Jersey desperately seeking help for his addiction.

When I came through those doors, I was broken. … This was, yo diría, around the … third season of ‘The Wire," ” Williams dijo.

I was on drugs. … I was in jeopardy of destroying everything I had worked so hard for, and I came in those doors, and I met a man who had never even heard of ‘The Wire,’ much less watched it,” él dijo, referring to the pastor.

I wrote my full name down — Michael Kenneth Williams — and in the office, [the pastor] turns around, and he says, ‘So what do you want to be called, hombre?’ I said, 'Bien, sabes, my name is Michael, but I could do Mike.’ He says, ‘Why does everybody say, ‘Omar, Omar’s in trouble?" ” Y me quede como, 'Oh, this dude is clueless [about the show]," ” Williams dijo.
