The suspect, identified Tuesday as 27-year-old Quincy Patterson, died after he was admitted to Emory Hillandale Hospital in Lithonia, police said.
“A preliminary review has concluded that the DeKalb officers used minimum restraints to prevent the subject from harming himself,” Vincent said. “Officers on the scene did not observe any physical injuries to the individual prior to placing him in the ambulance for transport to (the hospital).”
The GBI is investigating the incident, but Patterson’s cause of death won’t be known until his autopsy results are returned, officials said Tuesday.
No additional details were released.
