Philip Seymour Hoffman's many fans have joined in a candlelit vigil for the late star, outside his Manhattan apartment.

A wake for the actor will happen today in the city, to be attended by family and friends, with a funeral service taking place tomorrow.

Hoffman, who won the Academy Award for Best Actor in 2005 for his portrayal of author Truman Capote, was found dead of an apparent heroin overdose in his New York City apartment on Sunday.

He had a needle in his arm and dozens of small plastic packets were found in the apartment, some empty and some still containing drugs.

Police have made multiple arrests in connection with the investigation into the actor's death.

According to Lt. John Grimpel of the New York Police Department, officers executed a search warrant at an apartment building on the 300 block of Mott Street in lower Manhattan, recovered a "quantity of narcotics" and made four arrests.
