They say the man, who was from Lloydminster, was found unresponsive shortly after 8 a.m. Officers attempted to resuscitate him until EMS arrived. EMS attempted CPR but pronounced the man dead on scene.
RCMP did not identify the man, nor say why or for how long he was in custody.
Saskatchewan RCMP say they have asked the Moose Jaw Police Service to investigate the “sudden death” in accordance with the RCMP act. They say they’ve also requested the Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice to act as an “independent observer” in the investigation.
