Jose Franco (9334)

7/8/2014: Franco was in a store allegedly committing fraud or stealing a phone and ran into a parking lot when confronted by police. Officer Robert Mount tasered, pepper sprayed and hit him with a baton. Mount and Officer Roland Pacheco arresteed and tried to subdue Franco, who was "generally being difficult" while handcuffed and being taken to the hospital for a fast heart rate. While unloading him, police said he "appeared to be faking unresponsiveness". The officers threatened to intubate him if he did not respond, and when the staff did this, his pulse stopped. The death was ruled a homicide and is currently under investigation.
