Police officers had a man in custody after responding to a robbery call Monday night, when he experienced a “medical event” and later died.


The police are waiting for the medical examination before releasing more details, but answered some questions about the incident at the end of a press conference this morning. The press conference’s subject was on deployment and the number of gun seizures over Labor Day weekend, and aired on Facebook live.
