911 Call From the Scene of Fatal Arrest
Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 10:18 PM EDT
UPDATE: Eight Baltimore City Police Officers have been named in Friday's in custody death: Jorge Bernardez-Ruiz, Nicholas Chapman, Matthew Cioffi, Alex Hashagen, Eric Hinton, Danielle Lewis, Derrick Beasley, and Latreese Lee. FOX45 is waiting on the name of the Morgan State Police Officer involved in the incident.
For the second time in less than a year, a man has died while being taken into police custody in Baltimore City. Homeowners told FOX45 that 44 year-old Tyrone West was dead before he even reached the ambulance.
The officers involved in Thursday night's fatal arrest are part of the same unit that arrested Anthony Anderson last September. Anderson died as he was being taken into police custody in 2012. While the officers were cleared of any wrongdoing it did prompt the Department of Justice to launch an investigation.
Whether the plain clothes officers involved in West's arrest used excessive force is now at the center of another investigation. While detectives examine the incident, Baltimore City Police Commissioner Anthony Batts is meeting with homeowners in the neighborhood to see if he can gather any additional information as to what led to West's death.
Police said West resisted arrest and they had to call for backup. Witnesses agree that West initially did resist, but one witness told FOX45 that once he was on the ground the police were hitting him with batons and kicking him in the head.
West had a lengthy criminal record, which included drug charges and resisting arrest. Family members say he just got out of prison last summer.
