The Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that jail staff and first responders attempted CPR on Mangan before he died.

The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation will investigate his death.

Records obtained by The Charlotte Observer show Mangan was booked into the jail Friday on larceny charges.
