NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — An inmate at a Virginia jail has died after suffering a medical emergency.

A spokeswoman for the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office told The Virginian-Pilot that 56-year-old John McCall died Wednesday morning at the Norfolk jail. McCall was being held at the jail after being arrested Monday on a trespassing charge.

The spokeswoman said McCall had already been receiving treatment for a chronic medical problem. Jail officials declined to reveal additional information.

Investigators do not suspect foul play, but are waiting for the medical examiner to determine the official cause of death.
