Naples, FL (AP) - A southwest Florida man died shortly after
being stunned with a Taser by Collier County deputies.

The sheriff's office reports that deputies responded to a
domestic disturbance Sunday, where 26-year-old Linel Lormeus'
mother was trying to get him under control. The woman told deputies
that Lormeus suffered from a mental illness and had stopped taking
his medication.

Lormeus reportedly ran from deputies and tried to fight them
off. Deputies stunned Lormeus, who then suffered from an unknown
medical emergency. Deputies performed CPR until paramedics arrived.

Lormeus was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced
dead.

A medical examiner will determine the cause of death.
