Despite receiving additional medical treatment at the hospital, Lane was pronounced dead at 7:02 a.m.

The incident is being investigated by the Virginia Beach Police Department and the Virginia Beach Sheriff's Office. As required, the incident has also been reported to the Virginia Department of Corrections, which reviews all in-custody deaths.
