Police responded to reports of a man yelling and acting violently inside a home. Officers saw the man, who appeared to be alone, yelling and breaking items. Police said the man was "bleeding profusely" from cuts on his body, possibly from breaking out windows. Officers called paramedics to the scene because they believed the man "was in an altered state and in need of medical assistance." The man then went outside, where officers tried to detain him. Police said the man would not comply with orders and, during a struggle, the man was tasered and killed.
