Inmate Dies while in Gregg County Jail Custody

A Gregg county inmate has died while in jail custody.

Twenty-five year old Lee Charles Gray of Longview was arrested on a traffic warrant early this morning.

Shortly after 10 a.m., Gray was taken to the nurses station complaining of being sick, and became unconscious while being examined.

C.P.R. was administered and an ambulance was called. Gray was transported to Good Shepherd Hospital, but died about 11:30 this morning.

Autopsy results are pending, and Gregg County Dheriff Maxey Cerliano has ordered an investigation. Texas Rangers have been called to the case. At this time, there appears to be no evidence of foul play.
