CARSON CITY, NV - Larry Peck, the man convicted of first-degree murder in the killing of a Reno police officer in 2003, was found unresponsive in his cell at the Northern Nevada Correctional Center.

Peck was found unresponsive in his cell on October 4, 2013. He was taken to Carson Tahoe Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, according to an official with The Nevada Department of Corrections.

Officials don't suspect foul play in Peck's death.

Peck, at the time age 52, was convicted of first-degree murder in the shooting death of Officer John Bohach. Bohach was gunned down outside Peck's home during a five-hour standoff.

Since 2003, Peck has been incarcerated with The Nevada Department of Corrections. He was serving a life sentence for murder in the first degree, use of a deadly weapon enhancement and resisting a public officer with a weapon, according to an official with The Nevada Department of Corrections.
