WEST COVINA, Calif. — A burglary suspect died Saturday after he fought with a West Covina police officer and a sheriff's deputy in a hospital emergency room, got Tasered and was later subdued by officers, detectives said Monday.

Coroner's officials described him as a Valinda man in his 40s but didn't release the name because his next of kin in Mexico hasn't been notified.
