Arlington County Police say a man has died after a struggle with officers, who used a stun gun in an attempt to subdue him.

Officers went to the Pentagon City Metro station on Sunday evening looking for a larceny suspect.

Police say an officer found the suspect on the platform at the station, and he was combative and uncooperative. The man refused the officer’s commands, and police say he assaulted the officer.

That’s when police say the officer used a stun gun on the man, but it did not incapacitate the man, and he continued to struggle.

A second officer arrived and helped handcuff the man. Police called medics, who took the man to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police say they will release the man’s name once his next of kin are notified.
