A detainee at the Oklahoma County Detention Center (OCDC) has died of unknown causes.

On Wednesday, Jan. 12, a detention officer was serving breakfast at 6:15 a.m. when they were alerted to an unresponsive detainee inside of a cell.

The detainee was identified as 30-year-old Austin Bishop.

OCDC says the officer began CPR on Bishop immediately and called for medical and other personnel.

Medical personnel continued in efforts to save Bishop, OCDC said. The Oklahoma City Fire Department later arrived and took over lifesaving efforts.
