Armed men attempt to rob pawn shop police searching for suspects

Early Sunday morning, two officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department were approached by a yet to be identified man inside The Venetian hotel and casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

Police say the man was acting erratic and said people were chasing him.

Police said uniformed officers tried to stop the man but he ran off on foot and a stun gun was used as he tried to get into a vehicle.

The man left the apartment as police arrived and approached officers with the gun.

The Associated Press reported that the Office of Internal Oversight and Constitutional Policing are investigating the death. Venetian security guards also tried to assist the officers.

"There are a lot of variables, including the competence of the officer, the condition of the person, mental health issues, whether they're a smoker, alcohol (use)", O'Donnell said.

Police used a stun gun to subdue a man in Las Vegas, who then died in custody.

Speaking to local media last week, Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said: "Our officers are trained to exhaust all of their options before resorting to the use of deadly force".

Brown's mother didn't immediately respond to a telephone message seeking comment.

LVNR is not considered deadly force by the Las Vegas Police Department, which trains most of its officers in the technique.

The brand of chokehold in question - a blood choke, or a Lateral Vascular Neck Restraint (LVNR) technique, in sanitized police vernacular.

Eugene O'Donnell, a former NY police officer who is a professor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, told AP that police in NY are taught not to use any kind of chokehold.

O'Donnell called it harder than it looks to handcuff a person who resists arrest, but said reaching for the neck can be risky.
