A Logan man died after he was shot with a stun gun twice in one night during confrontations with Logan police and hospital officials.
In a statement released Wednesday, the Logan Police Department said the 49-year-old man was screaming and acting erratic at an unidentified location on the evening of Jan. 17. He was allegedly yelling at "Satan" and refused to follow officers' orders. He allegedly told police that he was going to get a gun and reached inside a doorway. Officers used a stun gun on him after he wouldn't put his hands up, the release states. He was then taken into custody and transported to the Logan Regional Hospital. Police say after being taken to the hospital, he calmed down enough to be interviewed by investigators, who cited him for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest and then released him at the hospital.
Police were called back to the hospital about three hours later that night after they received reports that the same man had gotten into a fight with hospital security. Police say the security officers deployed another stun gun on the man, and by the time police showed up he was in full cardiac arrest. Medical staff attempted life saving efforts but the man died soon after.
