 A 23-year-old man died shortly after being detained by San Diego Police, the sheriff’s department said Monday.

Officers were dispatched just after 10 p.m. Sunday to the 3100 block of 39th Street in City Heights for a family disturbance, according to Lt. Chris Steffen.

The lieutenant said family members were restraining Denny Jalate on the ground outside their home when the officers arrived. The officers then handcuffed Jalate, but afterward he went into “medical distress,” prompting officers to begin life-saving measures.

Paramedics took Jalate to a hospital, but his health declined and he died.

Steffen said an autopsy will be scheduled at a later date and the sheriff’s homicide unit has assumed responsibility of the death investigation.
