Nursing Home Resident Dead After Confrontation With Police

By NBCChicago.com

A 95-year-old resident of an Illinois nursing home died early Saturday, hours after being shocked with a Taser and bean bag rounds in a confrontation with police.

Authorities said John Warna was a resident at Victory Centre of Park Forest, on the 100 block of South Main Street in the south suburb. He was threatening paramedics and staff with a cane and a metal shoehorn when police arrived at the complex, they said.

Police said they struck him with a Taser and bean bag rounds after he threatened officers with a 12-inch butcher knife.

Warna was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where he later died.

A cause of death was not released by Saturday evening.

A bit more info here, but, no photo! I want to see this tough 95 year old who needed to be subdued with a taser and bean bags! I also want to know the toxiology results.

**Authorities: 95-Year-Old Dies After Confrontation With Park Forest Police**

11:06 A.M. CDT, July 27, 2013

A 95-year-old resident of a Park Forest senior living community who was wielding a 12-inch blade and a cane was shocked with a Taser and then hit by bean-bag rounds from police before later dying at a south suburban hospital, according to authorities.

According to an e-mailed press release from Park Forest police, officers were sent to 101 Main Street in Park Forest about 8:42 p.m. to help a private ambulance company with a, "combative," resident of the home there. The Victory Centre of Park Forest, a supportive living community for adults 65 and older according to its website, is at that address.

The resident of the faculty was being, "involuntarily," committed for medical treatment by staff at the Victory Centre, the release said.

When police arrived, the man was threatening staff and paramedics with a metal cane and a 2-foot metal shoehorn, the release said. Police demanded that he drop the cane and shoehorn, but he did not comply and then picked up a, "12-inch butcher type kitchen knife."

Police continued to command the man to surrender and follow their orders and eventually used a Taser on him. That failed to subdue him and he continued to threaten others, the release said. Police then fired bean bag rounds at the man to get him to drop the knife and surrender. He did so and was taken into custody.

The man was conscious and talking to officers and staff before being transported to a local hospital by the paramedics. He was later taken from St. James Hospital and Health Centers in Chicago Heights to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died about 2:30 a.m., according to authorities.

The man was later identified by the Cook County medical examiner's as John Warna, who lived at the Victory Centre.

Bit OTT reaction to do that to him. Not even just a taser but shooting him too with beanbag rounds No wonder he carried on threatening people after being tasered, probably scared and senile guy. Pretty sure if someone bothered to try and talk him round properly he would have come to his senses.

At least all the officers made it home safe to their family's

Sarcasm off, I wasn't there but it would be a safe bet that the cops way overreacted

The article said butcher knife.

Still, they probably overreacted. Since the death was ruled a homicide, do the police involved go on trial now? Or what?

This is about an hour from me and right by where I grew up.

Go to the police station, please, and see if you can get us a picture of John

The stories keep changing. He was also taken in a private ambulance.

It went from a cane and shoe horn to a butter knife.

Later reports are saying a butcher knife.

I really want to see this guy!
