October 19, 2009 - 19-Year-Old Dies after Police in Southern California Subdue Him with Taser at Care Facility

Police say a 19-year-old man has died in Southern California after officers used a Taser to subdue him at a board-and-care facility.

A San Bernardino police department statement says the man died at a hospital early Saturday. The department says officers had been summoned to the facility to investigate a fight involving three people late Friday night. Police say officers separated the trio but "one of the subjects became combative and a Taser was deployed to control him."

The man was having trouble breathing, and police called paramedics. He was pronounced dead at a hospital about an hour later.

The man's name and cause of death haven't been released.
