Inmate found unresponsive, dies in San Diego Central Jail
A man died while in custody at the San Diego Central Jail, law enforcement said Friday.
The 31-year-old inmate was found unresponsive, "slumped over" near a partition in a holding cell on the second floor of the jail around 6 p.m., according to the San Diego County Sheriff's Office.
The man, whose name was withheld, was pronounced dead at 6:28 p.m., despite lifesaving procedures — including administering Naloxone — said officials.
Homicide detectives are investigating the incident. The San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office is expected to perform an autopsy today to determine the cause of death.
This is the ninth in-custody death reported this year.
