Suspect Suffers Heart Attack, Dies After Arrested by Cops

Associated Press

April 07, 2010

COMPTON — Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies say one of six men arrested after a double killing died of an apparent heart attack after being put in a patrol car.

Sheriff’s Cmdr. Bob Osborne says deputies answering a call Monday night about a robbery at a Compton auto shop found three gunshot victims and saw a van driving away. Osborne says deputies stopped the van and several suspects ran. After short chases, six men were arrested.

He says one of the suspects, placed in a patrol car, was then found unresponsive. Osborne says resuscitation efforts failed and he was pronounced dead.

Two of the three gunshot victims died. He says the names of the dead haven’t been released.

    He's involved in a double homicide, then dies after fleeing from the police. Can't feel sory for him at this point, folks.

    I agree with you Jonas........it was the foot chase, coupled with knowing he was going to jail. I will just say one thing tho, this is a land of where one is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, having said that, I doubt very seriously these guys were innocent. RIP to the victims of this brutal gunshot attack, Kharma is a Bi#$%$ !!!!!!!

    Hmmm, Kharma strikes again. I wonder what the UCLA and Amnesty International is going to try to blame this one on?

    If you're going to go shooting people, committing robberies, and running from the police...you might want to stop eating KFC and be in some decent shape. No. Wait, scratch that.

    And of course the heart attack was caused by being placed into the police car, and not the chase!! AP you suck again!!!!! There are lot's of real good cop stories. Why do you (AP) only cover stories that make Cops look bad and the perps look like victims??
