FULLERTON, Calif., Aug. 3 (UPI) — The FBI and California authorities said they are investigating the death of a homeless man five days after a run-in with Fullerton, Calif., police officers.

Witnesses said six officers fought with Kelly Thomas, 37, a schizophrenic, and used a stun gun to subdue him July 5, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The incident sent Thomas into a coma and he died after being taken off life support.

A photo taken of Thomas at the hospital showed his face grotesquely swollen and covered with bruises and cuts.
