BROOKSVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A deputy found an inmate hanging from his cell door at the Hernando County Detention Facility.

Crews responded immediately Thursday afternoon but 59-year-old Bruno Paul Mirabella was pronounced dead at the scene.

Hernando County Sheriff’s officials say that a review of the facility’s video equipment found that one of the jail’s cameras captured Mirabella approaching the door and taking his own life some 15 minutes before he was found.

He had been booked into jail earlier Thursday after being arrested at his home on violation of probation stemming from a charge of driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license.

An investigation is continuing.
