    Robert F. Chew, best known for his role on the hit HBO show The Wire, has died from heart failure, according to The Baltimore Sun. He was 52.

    Chew, who played Proposition Joe on the cable show, passed away in his sleep on Thursday at his home in Baltimore, his sister Clarise Chew tells the paper.

    His former co-star Michael Kenneth Wiliams Tweeted a message on Thursday saying, "R.I.P. to the talented Mr Robert Chew." The message was retweeted almost 1,000 times and was met by shock and sadness from friends and fans.

    "I didn't want to believe this #RIP Robert F Chew," The Wire's Jamie Hector wrote on Twitter. "Prop Joe will always be remembered Robert Chew will always be loved and missed!"
