Domestic Violence Call Ends In Suspect’s Death

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A domestic violence suspect died after fighting with police officers Wednesday night.

The Sacramento Police Department said a woman fled a home on Harding Avenue and called 911 after being attacked by her boyfriend.

Two officers arrived on scene and found the suspect passed out on a couch. When the officers woke him up, he reacted violently and punched an officer in the face, authorities said.

During the subsequent struggle to subdue the suspect, the man stopped breathing. Department spokesman Sgt. Norm Leong said officers and paramedics attempted to revive him with CPR, but ultimately failed.

No tasers or other weapons were used to subdue the suspect, police said.

Investigators are looking at drugs and alcohol as possible causes for the man’s death.
