MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 25-year-old female inmate has died in apparent suicide attempt at the Hennepin County Jail Monday, according to the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office.

At 1 p.m., the inmate was found unresponsive in her cell. Deputies immediately began CPR, paramedics continued treatment and transported her to the Hennepin County Medical Center, where she was later pronounced dead.

The Sheriff’s Office says the woman had been in jail for approximately one month. She was arrested by Bloomington Police on a charge of aggravated robbery.
