A suspect died this afternoon while struggling with officers from the Pittsburg Police Department during an arrest, a police captain said.
Officers attempted to stop a vehicle around 2:30 p.m., but the suspect led them on a short pursuit and fled into a residence in the 4200 block of Hillview Drive.
They followed him inside where a struggle ensued, during which the suspect bit an officer's hand. At some point during the struggle they deployed a Taser, but it was ineffective, according to Capt. Ron Raman.
The suspect was eventually handcuffed with the assistance of additional officers, but moments later he became unresponsive and they performed CPR, Raman said.
