Authorities say Daniel Lyons Myers of Red Bluff died early Monday morning. Officials are awaiting results of toxicology tests to determine the cause of death.
Officials say Red Bluff police officers were responding to a 911 call from a resident who said Myers was inside a home with a knife and was acting irrationally.
Police say when officers tried to handcuff Myers, he resisted and began showing signs of serious medical distress. CPR and other life-saving measures failed to revive him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Red Bluff, Tehama County and federal authorities are investigating the incident. The names of the involved officers are being withheld until the investigation is complete.
