Philip Seymour Hoffman

Police in NYC arrested three men and a woman late Tuesday in connection with the apparent drug overdose death of Oscar winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. The four — two men in their 50s and one in his 20s — and a woman in her 20s were arrested at a Chinatown apartment that was placed under surveillance following a tip to police.

Friends found Hoffman unresponsive on the bathroom floor of his apartment on Sunday morning. The heroin needle was still in Hoffman’s arm when paramedics arrived. He was pronounced dead at the scene Sunday at 11:30 a.m. A witness observed Hoffman purchasing heroin from 2 men near his Manhattan apartment after withdrawing $1,200 from an ATM at around 8 p.m. Saturday night.
