The Independent Investigation Office of BC says a man’s death last week was not connected to the use of a taser by police during his arrest.
Last Wednesday, Coquitlam RCMP officers were called to a home on Balmoral Drive and found an injured man “in crisis”.
A taser was deployed and the man was taken into custody where he later went into medical distress and died in hospital.
The IIO says their probe concluded the man’s previous injuries are what caused his death.
The man’s identity is not being released.
