A 26-year-old man died on Friday after police used a Taser stun gun to bring him under control, a local sheriff’s office in California said.

The incident occurred in San Jose, 70 kilometres southwest of San Francisco, at a hospital where police were called to break up a fight.

In trying to subdue an alleged troublemaker described as “a 26-year-old Hispanic male resident of San Jose,” police fired a Taser gun at him leaving him unconscious, the Santa Clara sheriff’s office said in a statement.

“Deputies observed that the subject was unresponsive. CPR was started immediately by deputies and officers on-scene,” it added.
