TUCSON AZ March 20 2012– Tucson police say they will have more to say Monday on the death of a 46-year-old man who struggled with Tucson police and was hit twice with a stun gun and later died.
Michael Carbone was pronounced dead early Sunday morning at a Tucson hospital.
Police spokeswoman Sgt. Maria Hawke tells The Associated Press the department has launched an internal investigation into Carbone’s death.
Hawke says the department is still assembling information from the investigation and will be prepared to respond Monday afternoon.
Hawke says officers responded to a domestic violence call Saturday which resulted in a confrontation between police and Carbone, prompting officers to shoot him twice with a stun gun.
Hawke says Carbone was later uncooperative with paramedics then became unresponsive when police placed him on the ground.
