Aspiring actor Tristian Loran was found dead inside a public housing complex in New York City over the weekend.

Loran, 19, previously had a small part on Tracy Morgan’s TBS comedy series The Last O.G., according to his IMDb page, which lists his name as Tristian Jacob Loran.

The New York Daily News, which was the first outlet to report on Loran’s death, said the teenager was found unresponsive inside a vacant unit in the Bronx’s Castle Hill Houses, owned by the New York Housing Authority (NYCHA), on Saturday, May 20.

He was pronounced dead at the scene after paramedics responded to the building located at Havemeyer Avenue at the corner of Randall Avenue. CBS New York reported Loran had suffered head trauma.

The NYPD is investigating the case. So far, no arrests have been made.

Loran’s sister, Victoria Sierra Loran, told the Daily News her brother was also a dancer and had been working on launching a rap career.

“He had a whole future going for him,” Victoria said. “We were supposed to make it out of the hood together.”

But Loran started to change during the COVID-19 pandemic, his sister said.

“I think he grew out of dancing, he wanted to make it out with basketball or rapping,” she explained. “He just wanted to get rich one day, get his family out the hood.”

Loran lived with his family, about six blocks away from the Castle Hill Houses.

His mother, Selena Sierra, said he fell in with the wrong crowd.

“You can’t change the environment, the kids they go to school with. I wanted him busy and off the streets,” Sierra said.

“When you have no basketball courts — and the few here are always full — what are you going to do?” she added. “They have us in quicksand and we extend an olive branch, wanting our kids to do other things. We want our kids to have activities, but they just sink deeper… All these kids get into stupid rapping. Offer them something.”
