LOS ANGELES, Aug. 23 (UPI) -- A funeral for actor Lee Thompson Young was set for the Paramount Pictures studio lot in Hollywood, TMZ reported.

Young's body was discovered in his home Monday after he fatally shot himself. He was 29.

Hundreds of mourners were expected to attend his funeral Friday afternoon on the lot where his show, "Rizzoli & Isles," is taped, TMZ said.
