GREENFIELD, Ind. (AP) - A man wanted in a stolen car investigation hit his head and died Tuesday after police shot him with a Taser, authorities said.

Greenfield police went into a Home Depot store to look for the man, but he fled into the parking lot, state police said.

“While chasing the suspect, one officer utilized a less-lethal weapon commonly referred to as a Taser. After the deployment of the Taser, the suspect fell to the ground and struck his head on the concrete,” state police said.

He was pronounced dead at a hospital. The man’s name wasn’t immediately released.

State police and the Hancock County coroner’s office are investigating the incident.
