OLATHE, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a man has died after struggling with police officers who were responding to an armed disturbance in suburban Kansas City.

Police in Olathe, Kansas, said in a news release that the struggle happened early Saturday when an agitated 34-year-old man began to threaten officers with a blunt object.

Police say officers were attempting to take him into custody when he suffered a “medical emergency.” The man was rushed to a hospital, where he later died. The name of the man wasn’t immediately released.

A multi-agency group is investigating. Pending the investigation, the officers who were involved have been placed on paid leave, as is standard procedure.
