Another inmate dies at Fulton County Jail, 10th inmate death this year
Another inmate died at Atlanta’s notorious Fulton County Jail after being found unresponsive by a jail official, the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday.
The incident marks the 10th inmate death at the jail this year.
Shawndre Delmore, 24, was found unresponsive in his cell on Aug. 31 and was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital after jail staff attempted “lifesaving measures” to revive him, officials said. He died on Sunday at the hospital.
The Atlanta Police Department arrested Delmore in April for burglary in the second degree and willful obstruction of a law enforcement officer, according to the sheriff’s office. He was being held on a $2,500 bond on the burglary charge, officials said.
