PORTLAND, Oregon — A man restrained by Portland police died at a hospital. The officers are on paid leave while an investigation takes place.
The incident started Thursday night with reports of a person yelling and running in the streets.
When Portland State University officers found the man, there was a struggle, so they requested assistance from Portland Police officers. The man was restrained and taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Investigators believe the man suffered a medical event and died at the hospital.
The Portland Police have launched an internal administrative investigation and two Portland Police officers will remain on leave until the review is completed.
