It happened near Moran and Riverton, where a suspect was reportedly illegally trying to enter a home. An MP responded, and the suspect fled on foot.

When officers finally found him, they say they had to use a taser and then pepper spray to control him. After cuffing him, they saw he was in distress and called for medical help. He was later pronounced dead.

The army’s investigative unit known as CID will conduct the investigation. No name has been released.
