An inmate has died after an incident at the South West Detention Centre in Windsor. 

According to the Ministry of the Solicitor General, the incident took place Wednesday morning.

A second inmate was involved in the incident and was taken to hospital. 

"Given the death is subject to multiple investigations, it would be inappropriate to provide further comment," said Greg Flood, spokesperson for the ministry. 

Investigations will involve the coroner's office, the police and the ministry.
