PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say a man has died after being subdued by police officers in downtown Phoenix.

Around 7:30 a.m. Friday, Phoenix Fire Department was called to a grocery store about a man complaining of chest pains.

When paramedics arrived, authorities say the man became combative, refused treatment and ran from the store.

Phoenix police were called, officers found the man in the middle of a street and they tried to get him out of the way of traffic.

They say the man became combative with officers and he was taken to the ground and placed in handcuffs.

Police say the man then went into medical distress. He was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

His name hasn’t been released yet. Police say he was about 35 years old.
