WGIL Newsroom . State Sports 101

CHICAGO (AP) — Authorities say a 41-year-old man has died after Chicago police used a stun gun while trying to break up a fight.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that 41-year-old Francisco Rocha of Chicago died Saturday afternoon on the city’s Southwest Side. The Cook County medical examiner and police say Rocha was involved in a fight with several other men when officers arrived at the scene.

Police say officers couldn’t control Rocha so they used the stun gun. Rocha was pronounced dead at Saint Anthony Hospital. The medical examiner’s office said Sunday that autopsy results were inconclusive pending further studies.

The Independent Police Review Authority was investigating.
