BAL­TI­MORE — A de­tainee at Bal­ti­more’s Cen­tral Book­ing and In­take Cen­ter has be­come the third per­son to die at the fa­cil­ity this year.

Greg McLhin­ney with the Mary­land De­part­ment of Pub­lic Safety and Cor­rec­tional Ser­vices tells that the de­tainee had al­ready been pro­cessed when he col­lapsed Thurs­day night, in view of mul­ti­ple of­fi­cers. He was part of a clean­ing crew when he died.

Spokesman Ger­ard Shields said the fa­cil­ity won’t ac­cept new de­tainees while it in­ves­ti­gates the death.

No foul play is sus­pected. Fur­ther de­tails have not been re­leased.

In June, a 31-year-old dis­abled man named Deniro Bel­lamy who had turned him­self in on a traf­fic vi­o­la­tion col­lapsed in a hold­ing cell and later died. Last month, 31-year-old David Ott died af­ter the fa­cil­ity af­ter be­ing ini­tially hos­pi­tal­ized.
