An inmate at the Salt Lake County jail died Saturday after what the Sheriff’s Office described as an “altercation” with another prisoner.
Daniel Lamont Davis, 38, died at a hospital from his injuries, according to a news release from the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office, which oversees the jail. The release didn’t specify whether his death is considered a homicide.
At about 6:30 a.m. Saturday, the news release said, Davis and another inmate got into a fistfight in a housing unit. A deputy intervened, the release said, and then deputies and jail medical staff members treated Davis.
