SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say an inmate has died at a county jail in Ohio.

The offices of Clark County’s coroner and the sheriff on Friday confirmed the death at the jail in Springfield, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) northeast of Dayton.

Chief Deputy Travis Russell says the in-custody death occurred Thursday, but provided no additional information. Russell said the death is still under investigation.

The Springfield News-Sun reports that the jail called for medics Thursday morning for a man in the facility’s booking area who was reported not breathing. The 911 caller told dispatchers that the man was between the ages of 20 and 30.
