Inmate dies after ‘medical episode’
A 19-year-old inmate at the Bexar County Adult Detention Center died early Friday after “suffering an apparent medical episode” Thursday, the Bexar County Sheriff's Office said. Joshua Andrew Miranda had been in custody since Sunday on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a BCSO press release said.
During an observation check shortly after noon Thursday, a deputy discovered Miranda unresponsive, according to the sheriff’s office. The San Antonio Fire Department was summoned and attempted lifesaving measures. Miranda was taken to the Baptist Medical Center in critical condition.
He was placed on life support, and around 5:40 a.m. Friday was pronounced dead, the sheriff’s office said.
