OSAWATOMIE, Kan. (AP) – A 32-year-old northeast Kansas man died after police used a Taser gun on him while he tried to flee.
Osawatomie police say Travis L. Maupin died at the Miami County Medical Center Thursday morning.
Police say Maupin had barricaded himself inside a home after police arrived to investigate a report of domestic violence.
He came out of the home but ran when paramedics checked the woman for injuries. Officers chased him for about a block and used the Taser on him when he resisted.
Osawatomie police asked the Kansas Bureau of Investigation to look into the death.
