On Wednesday the NYPD were responding to a 9-1-1 call due to a man who was “acting violent” and had a knife according to NY Daily News. When officers arrived on the scene, the 49-year-old man who was acting erratically had threatened the police with a bottle. 

The article says that a sergeant used a stun gun in order to contain the armed man. The man fell down on the ground but then woke back up and tried to charge at the officers again. The sergeant used his Taser again and the man went into cardiac arrest. The officers tried to do CPR on the man but unfortunately he didn’t wake up.
