A man fleeing police in Oakland, California, died on Sunday after getting stuck between two buildings.
Police attempted to pull over the 23-year-old driver around 5:43 p.m., but he fled into a yard in east Oakland. Officers waited for backup to arrive before searching for him, according to a statement from the police department.
When officers found him a couple of blocks away about 30 minutes later, he was "unresponsive" and "wedged in a small space between two buildings," Police Officer Johnna Watson told The Huffington Post in an email.
Police performed CPR, but the man was pronounced dead at a hospital. Watson told the San Francisco Chronicle that police used no force against him.
The man was wanted on a $10,000 warrant, Watson said, though she declined to respond to questions about the nature of the warrant. She added that officers found "about a pound of suspected marijuana in his car."
The police say they won't release the man's identity before they reach his next of kin. The cause of death will be determined by the Alameda County Coroner.
