Dallas TX December 6 2018 A man accused of attacking a security guard with a machete died early Wednesday after an officer tased him in southeast Dallas.
The security guard called police to report the assault at the Creekside Villas Apartments in the 300 block of north Jim Miller Road around 2:45 a.m., Dallas police spokesman Mitchell Warren said.
Officers found the knife-wielding man a couple of blocks west, in the 6900 block of Dart Avenue, and ordered him to drop the weapon. When he refused, one of the officers tased him, Warren said.
The man “experienced a medical emergency after being tased,” Warren said.
Dallas Fire-Rescue took him to Baylor University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead about 4 a.m., according to the Dallas County medical examiner. He has not been publicly identified, pending notification of next of kin.
The security guard was not injured.
