An inquest will examine the circumstances around the death of a man who died after police subdued him with a stun gun during a 2019 arrest, Manitoba's chief medical examiner's office said on Friday.
Viengxay Chommany, 42, was pronounced dead at St. Boniface Hospital on Aug. 4, 2019. His death followed a police chase in the early hours of Aug. 2, the medical examiner's office said in a news release.
Officers had responded to a domestic violence call on Consol Avenue in Winnipeg's northeast Braeside neighbourhood, the release said. When they got there, they saw an assault happening inside a house and forced their way in.
