A man in the northern California city of San Jose died after being jolted with a Taser, police said Thursday, apparently the sixth such death since the department began using the stun guns in 2004.

The man, who police said appeared to be in his 20s, got into a struggle with two officers when they tried to arrest him in the backyard of a home late Wednesday.

“The struggle was very, very violent to get him into custody,” said police spokesman Mike Sullivan. “Some time during the struggle, the officers did deploy a Taser.”

One officer was cut in the face during the scuffle and the other had a leg injury. Police said both were treated and released from a hospital.

Police watchdog groups said the death is the sixth in San Jose connected with use of a Taser, though police could immediately confirm that figure. The city has been sued in at least three of those cases.
