On Tuesday, July 2, 2019, at approximately 3:33 a.m., Sacramento Police Officers responded to the 500 block of David J Stern Walk regarding an individual trespassing. When responding Sacramento Police Officers arrived, they assisted security officers who had already detained and handcuffed the suspect. The suspect was reportedly behaving erratically, running through the building, ignoring commands from security officers and appeared to be under the influence of an unknown substance.

The suspect became unresponsive. Officers then monitored vital signs and performed CPR before SFD arrived and took over medical care. SFD transported the suspect to a local area hospital where he is receiving medical treatment.

Due to the suspect experiencing a medical emergency while detained by the Sacramento Police Department, an investigation was initiated. Detectives and Crime Scene Investigators responded to the scene.

On July 4, 2019, the male adult subject involved in this incident passed away while receiving medical treatment at a local hospital.
