  • Police investigating in custody death

Authorities say an unarmed man has died after police officers used a stun gun and neck grab to subdue him during an arrest on the Las Vegas Strip.

Police said he was acting erratic and claimed people were chasing him. Both officers followed, police said, and caught the man after he tried opening a tailgate on someone's pickup before approaching the side door of the vehicle.

Police said the man kept fighting, so one of the officers punched him several times before administering a "department approved control technique" called the lateral vascular neck restraint.

The local coroner's office has yet to release the official cause of death in the case, but the Metro's Force Investigation Team & Critical Incident Review Team has begun an investigation into the matter, according to police.

Police said they attempted CPR on the scene, but the man died at a Las Vegas hospital trauma center a short time later.

A spokesperson for Las Vegas Sands, which operates the Venetian, didn't immediately respond to messages seeking comment Monday morning.

LVNR is not considered deadly force by the Las Vegas Police Department, which trains most of its officers in the technique.

"There are a lot of variables, including the competence of the officer, the condition of the person, mental health issues, whether they're a smoker, alcohol (use)", O'Donnell said.
