Man Killed While Fighting Police
A suicidal man presumably on a controlled substance died Sunday morning after fighting with St. Paul police officers, according to the Star Tribune.
According to the police report, officers were called to a home in the 300 block of Wheelock Parkway about a suicide in progress with a controlled substance.
The man confronted and attacked the officers as they tried to calm him down. Officers sprayed a chemical substance on the man, which had no effect, so they used a taser. The man fought but restrained and became unresponsive, according to the Pioneer Press.
Paramedics treated him but he died at the scene.
The name of the man was not released.
The incident is under investigation.
