Man Dies While in Police Custody


An investigation is underway into the death of a man in police custody.

Officers were called by a woman working at a Metro PCS store along Folsom Boulevard Friday evening who said there was a suspicious man inside with her.

She later called back and said she felt threatened by the man. When cops arrived at the store, the man was holding the doors shut and refused to come out.

Officers were able to pull the door open, and then began to struggle with the man.

At some point during the struggle, police tell FOX40 the man passed out. Officers then rushed him to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
