Man dies after being Tasered by RCMP in Shuswap region

VANCOUVER – A 38-year-old man who was Tasered by Mounties in B.C.'s Shuswap region this week has died in hospital, according to the province's police watchdog.

RCMP officers arrested the man, whose name hasn't been released, early Monday morning in Malakwa, a small settlement located just north of Sicamous.

Officers allege he resisted arrest before they used a Taser on him. They said he went into medical distress after they'd put him in handcuffs.
