PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Authorities say a man who was restrained by police in Portland, Oregon, later died at a hospital and the officers are on paid leave while an investigation takes place.

KOIN reports the incident started Thursday night with reports of a person yelling and running in the streets.

When Portland State University officers found the man, there was a struggle, so they requested assistance from Portland Police officers. The man was restrained and taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Investigators believe the man suffered a medical event and died at the hospital. Police on Friday night identified the man as 52-year-old Richard A. Barry.

The Portland Police have launched an internal administrative investigation and two Portland Police officers, James DeAnda and Jared Abby, will remain on leave until the review is completed.
