SAN DIEGO (AP) - An autopsy finds a man who was shot with a stun gun by U.S. immigration authorities at a San Diego border crossing died of cardiac arrest.
The San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office says in a report released Tuesday that 40-year-old Francisco Manuel Cesena's cardiac arrest occurred because he was shot and held face down on the ground and he was under the influence of methamphetamine and heroin. The manner of death is ruled a homicide.
