Officers used physical force, pepper spray and a Taser to restrain Johnson, Zogby said.

Johnson’s family wants answers and believes the police may have used unnecessary deadly force.

"I need to know if my child wasn't Tased would he be living today?" asked Johnson’s mother, Angela Curry.

After he was taken into custody, Johnson's health began to decline and he was taken to Hialeah Hospital, Zogby said. He was eventually taken to North Shore Hospital and then Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he died around 6 p.m., Zogby said.
