Man dies while Antioch police attempt to arrest him for breaking into apartment, Thursday

By Captain Leonard Orman, Antioch Police Department Field Services

On Thursday, June 25, 2015 at 12:25 pm, officers responded to 2301 Sycamore Dr. regarding a male who had forced the door open to a resident’s apartment and entered inside. When officers arrived he was no longer in the home.

A short time later, officers located the suspect in the apartment complex and attempted to detain him. During their attempts to do so, the suspect suffered some sort of medical distress. Fire and ambulance were arriving on scene and life saving measures were taken. The 31-year-old man was transported to the hospital and later pronounced deceased.

Because this is considered an in custody death, the county protocol was invoked. The Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office, the Contra Costa County Crime Lab and the Antioch Police Department will be conducting an investigation into the facts surrounding this incident. No further information will be released tonight regarding the investigation.

    Police brutality! Sharpton will be in town very soon. Hypocritical liberals will soon argue that the mere sight of police is way too brutal and will cause people to die.
