Man, 44, shocked with Taser dies after struggling with Miami-Dade police

Authorities are investigating the death of a 44-year-old man who died in a jail cell hours after he was shocked with a Taser stun gun early Friday morning.

After Wilson again became violent, officers physically restrained him, police said. Authorities did not say how they restrained Wilson at the jail, but said he was not shocked with a Taser gun. A guard later found Wilson unresponsive inside a jail cell, police said.

"There's not too much information right now," Hall said, adding that the death is under investigation.
