TULSA, Okla. (AP) – An autopsy indicates a Tulsa man died of cardiac arrest after being shocked with a stun gun by an Osage Nation police officer in February.

The Tulsa World ( ) reports the Oklahoma Medical Examiner’s report on 41-year-old Terry Price was released Wednesday.

Osage Nation police officers say they tried to apprehend Price after he ran from the grounds of Osage Casino, from which he had been banned.

Authorities say they used a stun gun on Price after he began to fight with several officers. They say he collapsed after he was handcuffed. Officers attempted to resuscitate Price before he was taken later at a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The district attorney’s office will determine whether charges will be pursued against the officers who were involved.
