RCMP are investigating after a man died in Airdrie RCMP custody on Friday night.

A 50-year-old man was arrested by RCMP at CrossIron Mills at around 8 p.m., police said.

Mounties said Saturday that the man died of “causes that have yet to be determined.”

Edmonton’s RCMP Major Crimes Unit is investigating the incident.

Though RCMP initially said ASIRT was investigating, police issued a correction on Sunday saying that ASIRT was not.
