MILPITAS, Calif. (AP) — An inmate has apparently killed himself at a Northern California county jail.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Santa Clara County sheriff’s deputies found the man Sunday night in a single-person cell at the Elmwood Correctional Facility in Milpitas.

He was unresponsive and efforts to revive him failed.

The 36-year-old man was arrested in July on suspicion of driving under the influence and carrying a loaded gun in a car.

His name hasn’t been released.

Authorities say it appears the man killed himself but his death remains under investigation.
