NY Attorney General investigating Bronx stun gun death
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office says it is investigating after a man died when police used a stun gun on him in the Bronx.
Ariel Galarza, 49, died Wednesday night in Pelham Bay after police responded to a call at his home.
Police say Galarza threatened officers with a broken bottle before a sergeant discharged his stun gun twice. Galarza went into cardiac arrest and later died.
Schneiderman's office has the power to investigate deaths of unarmed people at the hands of police.
