Villa del Sol Apartments
DALLAS — Dallas police are investigating the death of a man who was in their custody early Saturday morning.
Police spokeswoman Melinda Gutierrez said off-duty officers noticed a man acting erratically in the courtyard of the Villa del Sol apartments in the 7700 block of Antoinette Street.
At first, the 44-year-old man identified as Jack Lee Young was unresponsive when approached by the officers; then there was a struggle.
After being handcuffed, Young stopped breathing, Gutierrez said. He was pronounced dead a short time later at Baylor University Medical Center.
Police are investigating the circumstances of the death, and a ruling on the cause of Young's death is pending.
Gutierrez said officers did not use a Taser during the apprehension.
