LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two people have died in the custody of Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies.

City News Service says a woman being held at the sheriff's station in Valencia died at about 12:30 p.m. Saturday but other details haven't been released.

In Lancaster, a man died after he was handcuffed and placed in the back of a sheriff's patrol car.

Deputies took the man into custody around 4 a.m. Friday after reports that he was yelling at people in a house and acting bizarrely.

Deputy Peter Gomez says deputies suspected the man was on drugs. Gomez says the man tried to kick out the patrol car windows and then went unconscious.

CPR was performed but he died at the scene. His name hasn't been released.
