SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the death of an inmate at the Onondaga County jail in Syracuse.
Sgt. Jon Seeber says a deputy conducting a cell check found the inmate unconscious inside his cell shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday.
The deputy called for assistance and began providing emergency medical care to the inmate, but the inmate could not be resuscitated and was pronounced dead.
His identity was not immediately released. Seeber says the sheriff’s office is investigating the death and has notified the New York State Commission of Correction. The county medical examiner’s office will determine the cause of death
