MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - An investigation is underway into the death of a 57-year-old inmate at the Missoula County Detention Center that authorities have described as medically related.

The Missoula County Sheriff’s Office says Arthur Kenneth Halks was found unresponsive in his cell Sunday when jail officers were serving lunch. Officers and jail medical staff had performed CPR and tried other lifesaving efforts on Halks, but were unable to revive him.

He was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead.

Halks had been jailed after a May 3 arrest on an assault with a weapon charge.

His death is being investigated by the Missoula Police Department and a coroner from the Ravalli County Sheriff’s Office.
