(SAN JOSE, Calif.) -- A 41-year-old man being restrained by officers outside a San Francisco police station collapsed suddenly and died Friday morning, prompting an investigation by the department's homicide section and the medical examiner's office.

The police department did not release the man's name pending notification of his family.

According to a police report, the man was yelling and threatening an officer who was waiting to have the man's vehicle towed. The vehicle was across the street from the Tenderloin station on Eddy Street. The officer said the man was "highly agitated" and repeatedly kicked the door to the police station.
