Mug shot for bank robbery suspect David Chilton.

PORTLAND, Ore. — A 55-year-old man has died in his jail cell at the Multnomah County Detention Center Saturday night.

The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office says the man was identified as David Chilton by the medical examiner's office. He was in custody on a U.S. Marshal hold for bank robbery.

Chilton was suspected of pulling a gun on a Portland State University safety officer and then robbing a bank and carjacking an SUV across town.

A corrections deputy tried to wake Chilton for dinner Saturday in his cell but found the inmate unresponsive. Medical personnel tried unsuccessfully to revive him.

The sheriff's office says an autopsy was conducted Sunday morning but the cause of death is pending further tests.
