Homicide not ruled out in death of California inmate

Authorities are investigating the death of an inmate at a Southern California jail.

Sheriff's officials say the male inmate was apparently injured during food delivery Monday at Orange County's Central Jail Complex.

A deputy started life-saving procedures and summoned medical staff. The 27-year-old died a short time later.

Lt. Lane Lagaret says the cause of death has not been confirmed and homicide has not been ruled out.

The Orange County Register reports the inmate, Danny Pham, was serving a 180-day sentence after pleading guilty to felony unlawful taking of a vehicle.
