According to police, paramedics were called to the jail shortly before 9 a.m. on Sunday to help transport the inmate to the hospital following a medical issue in his cell. 

Shortly after, 42-year-old Timothy Budek of Buffalo was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say he was arrested for felony possession of narcotics around 5 p.m. Saturday. 

The incident remains under investigation by homicide detectives and the BPD Internal Affairs Division. As per protocol, the New York State Department of Corrections has been notified.
