Arizona (Next Sharks): According to the Associated Press, ICE officials confirmed the death of 47-year-old Huy Chi Tran on Tuesday at Banner Casa Grande Medical Center after being hospitalized for a week.
He was reportedly rushed to the hospital after being found unresponsive at the Eloy Detention Center in Arizona on June 5.
While Tran entered the U.S. as a legal permanent resident, he was placed in ICE custody on May 25 because of an earlier criminal conviction for aggravated assault. He was awaiting deportation when he fell ill and was transferred to the hospital.
Tran, whose cause of death has yet to be determined in an autopsy, is the seventh detainee to die in ICE custody since October of last year.
