LAWTON, Okla. (AP) — The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said Friday investigators are looking into the death of a 30-year-old man at the Lawton City Jail.

The man was booked into the jail early Wednesday and found unresponsive the following day, the OSBI said in a press release.

The release says jail staff attempted life-saving measures, but that they were unsuccessful.

The man was pronounced dead the jail, and the medical examiner will determine the cause and manner of his death. His name has not been released.
