Reported by the Associated Press.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Police in St. Louis are investigating the death of a man in police custody.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that police said that about midnight Saturday, officers saw a man in a vehicle who they believed fit the description of a recent robbery suspect.

When the officers approached, the man fled.

Police chased the man on foot and tried to subdue him. Police said officers tased the suspect when he fought back and that he was carrying what appeared to be a narcotic.

Shortly after he was taken into custody, the suspect became unresponsive and was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The cause of death has not been determined.

St. Louis police have identified the man as Kerwin Harris, 39, of St. Louis.

Polices are Herod and I give them nothing but respect but I don’t know how can someone take an innocent good man away from this earth he would give you the shirt off his back he was such a good man . To top it off he died 3 days before Christmas that had to be the worst experience of my life even though he wasn’t no longer there I called his phone and told him thanks for the gifts and I loved him like it was a regular Christmas . Since the whole thing my mom became very depressed and very distant from a lot of people but she always say that she is ok but deep down my mom is not ok and I know that
