CORAM, N.Y. – Police say a man who had locked himself and his mother in her Long Island home died after he tussled with officers and was zapped twice with a stun gun.
Police say they're investigating the early Saturday death of 43-year-old Darryl Bain in Coram, about 50 miles east of New York City.
They say Bain's brother called 911 alleging Bain was high on cocaine and had shut himself in the house with their 78-year-old mother, who had an order of protection.
Police say three officers heard a struggle inside and entered the house and fought with Bain, who was temporarily stunned after being shot with a Taser.
Police tell the Newdsay newspaper he continued to struggle as they handcuffed him and he was Tasered again before dying.
The medical examiner's office will determine his cause of death.
