KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Police in Kansas City, Kansas, say a man shocked by an officer’s stun gun has died at a hospital.

Police said officers were summoned Wednesday afternoon to a report of man behaving strangely at the parking lot of a Family Dollar store. They say the man turned combative when paramedics tried to treat him. That’s when police say an officer used a stun gun on the man while trying to subdue him.

The cause of the man’s death was not immediately clear, and the matter is being investigated.

The name of the man involved in the confrontation wasn’t immediately released.
