 Federal authorities say a drug suspect has died while in custody at a U.S. Border Patrol facility in Texas.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection says the 36-year-old man was found unresponsive Friday in a holding cell at a Border Patrol checkpoint between Carlsbad, New Mexico, and El Paso, Texas.

Authorities say agents performed CPR on the man before he was transported to an El Paso hospital where he died.

They say he was in custody for drug possession.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Office of Internal Affairs is investigating.
