Funeral services for actor Lee Thompson Young will take place on Friday afternoon at the Paramount Studios lot, where Young worked on the TV show "Rizzoli & Isles."

TMZ reports that the services were announced today, and that hundreds of people are expected to attend.

Young, 29, was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound earlier this week. His body was discovered by authorities in his L.A. apartment, after they were alerted to the fact that he didn't show up for work that day. Young did not leave a suicide note.

The actor portrayed police detective Barry Froston "Rizzoli & Isles," and prior to that he starred as the lead on Disney's "The Famous Jett Jackson," and was in the 2004 movie "Friday Night Lights."
