Andre Braugher, the star of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Homicide: Life on the Street has died aged 61.

Braugher died after a brief illness, his publicist Jennifer Allen told The Associated Press.

He often portrayed a police officer during his career, performing both in dramatic and comedic roles.

Born in Chicago, Andre Braugher graduated from Stanford University before attending The Juilliard School for drama.

He was nominated for 11 Emmy Awards – including four for his role as Captain Raymond Holt in Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

His co-star Terry Crews, who played Terry Jeffords in the sitcom, was among the first to pay tribute to Braugher’s “irreplaceable talent”.

“I’m honoured to have known you, laughed with you, worked with you and shared eight glorious years watching your irreplaceable talent,” Crews said on Instagram.

“This hurts. You left us too soon. You taught me so much. I will be forever grateful for the experience of knowing you. Thank you for your wisdom, your advice, your kindness and your friendship.

“You showed me what a life well lived looks like.”

Andre Braugher’s breakthrough came in the 1989 film Glory, where he played a soldier in a black Union regiment in the American civil war.

His television career flourished playing detective Frank Pembleton in the gritty Baltimore police show Homicide: Life on the Street, for which he won an Emmy Award in 1998.

David Simon, whose non-fiction book Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets inspired the show, said Braugher’s death was “too damn soon”.

Why cop show Homicide: Life on the Street was revolutionary

“I’ve worked with a lot of wonderful actors. I’ll never work with one better,” Simon, who also created The Wire, said on Twitter.

Speaking to BBC News earlier this year, Homicide writer and producer Tom Fontana praised Braugher’s screen presence, charisma and energy.

“I had never seen an actor like that on television,” said Fontana. “His rhythms were so unique.”

Braugher’s other notable credits include Benjamin O Davis in Tuskegee Airmen, Dr Ben Gideon in Gideon’s Crossing – which won him a Golden Globe nomination – and Owen in Men Of A Certain Age, all roles which won him Emmy Award nominations.

Mike Royce, who co-created Men Of A Certain Age, said on Twitter: “This is impossible for me to process. He was best actor in the world. An incredible human being. An incomprehensible loss.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter, he had been cast as the male lead in a Netflix-backed murder-mystery The Residence, set at the White House.

Andre Braugher, a Chicago native and Stanford University and Juilliard graduate, is survived by his wife Ami Brabson, and their children John Wesley Braugher, Michael Braugher, and Isaiah Braugher.
