LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A Las Vegas Detention Center corrections officer died at the facility while on duty Thursday morning. 

City of Las Vegas officials said Kyle Eng was found unconscious at the jail then transported to University Medical Center where he could not be revived. 

His cause and manner of death will be released by the Clark County Coroner's officer after family notification.

Eng was employed with Las Vegas' Department of Public Safety since January, a release said. 

An official said flags at city facilities were lowered to half-staff to honor Eng. 

Las Vegas Metro police are assisting with the follow-up investigation as part of the jail's protocol.

Anyone who would like to help Eng's family with funeral expenses may donate to an account set up with Wells Fargo.
