MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

The Mississippi County Coroner has released the name of a man who died after an alleged altercation at the Mississippi County Jail.

According to Terry Parker, Tory D. Sanders, 28, of Nashville, Tennessee died of unknown causes.

Sanders was reportedly unruly and unmanageable with authorities on Friday night, May 6.

Attorney General Josh Hawley said there were two fights: the first began around 5 p.m. and the second reportedly happened around 7 p.m.

Six officers were seriously injured as a result of the incident, according to Mississippi County Jail Administrator Sally Gammons. She said all six officers were taken to the hospital for treatment.

Parker said officers tried to restrain Sanders. He then reportedly collapsed and was rushed to a hospital in Sikeston.

Sanders died around 9 p.m.

An autopsy took place Saturday morning in Farmington.

Those results came back inconclusive according to the Coroner.

Sheriff Cory Hutcheson said he asked the Missouri State Highway Patrol's Department of Drug and Crime Control division in to investigate the incident.

Hutcheson has since been stripped of his office after an emergency order was signed by a judge. Attorney General Josh Hawley said that Hutcheson directed one of the fights that led to Sanders death.
