Taser death man 'may have been innocent'


A man who may not have been involved in any crime, and may not have posed a danger, has died after police stunned him a with a Taser in central Sydney.

Officers had identified the man as a suspect after a report of a robbery at a convenience store in King St about 5.30am (AEDT) on Sunday.

They confronted him in Pitt St and tried to arrest him.

When he resisted, they used capsicum spray and a Taser.

He stopped breathing and died despite the efforts of police and paramedics.

Acting Assistant Commissioner Mark Walton said police were merely responding to reports of a robbery and the details of what happened remains unclear.

"It's unclear as to the involvement of this man or the extent of that actual incident. Whether it is a robbery or not is unclear at this time," Mr Walton said on Sunday.

"The report of a robbery is ongoing and I cannot ... even confirm that it was an actual robbery.

I read the story yesterday and the alleged incident at a shop happened in The Rocks, then they later 'found' the guy in Pitt St - just didn't sit right.

Six cops, one shirtless man, three Taser shots

AN unarmed man, accused of stealing a packet of biscuits, was tasered by at least three police officers before he collapsed and died on a Sydney street.

Graphic CCTV footage shows the man's final moments as he was chased down a city street by six officers and subdued by a final Taser shot, seemingly to his back.

The man, a South American on an expired visa, died on the spot, unable to be revived by the officers.

The Daily Telegraph has been told "at least three times officers used Tasers" on the shirtless robbery suspect.

Each time he recovered, fended off the officers and stumbled to his feet, until the final shot ended the incident.

Witnesses claimed the man screamed "help me" as the officers held him down.
