25-year-old woman dies in Hennepin County Jail

MINNEAPOLIS — A 25-year-old woman has died after an apparent suicide attempt at the Hennepin County Jail.

The sheriff's office says the woman was found unresponsive in her cell about 1 p.m. Monday. Deputies and paramedics tried to revive her, but she was pronounced dead at HCMC.

The woman had been in jail for about a month after Bloomington police arrested her on suspicion of aggravated robbery.
