"NYPD Blue" writer dies
David Mills, a Washington-born writer who had a successful career as a television writer, died Tuesday in New Orleans, his family confirmed Wednesday.
Mills, who grew up in Lanham and attended the University of Maryland, was also a staff writer for the Style section of The Washington Post in the 1990s.
Mills, a writer on TV shows such as "NYPD Blue", "The Wire" and "The Corner," died just days before the premiere of his new show "Treme." Mills is also well known for his incendiary 1992 Washington Post profile of Sister Souljah in which the rapper claimed that the L.A. riots were "revenge" against a system of white oppression.
