ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say an inmate at an Albuquerque jail is dead.

Bernalillo County Sheriff’s officials say 46-year-old Vincent Torres died just before 6 a.m. Wednesday.

They say the cause of death hasn’t been determined yet.

The Metropolitan Detention Center was placed on lockdown until the county Medical Examiner’s Office was able to come and take the body away.

The lockdown was lifted at 8:30 a.m.

Jail officials say Torres was booked into the detention center on March 31 on a warrant for failure to appear in court on possession of a controlled substance charge.
