HEMET -- A man who was shocked by a taser from a Riverside County Sheriff's deputy last Saturday has died at a hospital in Hemet. The identity of the man, who passed away Thursday, has not been released.

Officials say deputies responded to a report that a man was behaving erratically around 3:50 p.m.Saturday in the 45200 block of Florida Avenue in southeast Hemet.

The Sheriff's department says when they arrived the man was screaming he was on fire, running over sprinklers and running in and out of traffic. When officers approached, the man became confrontational and made threatening gestures, officials say. A Riverside County Sheriff's investigator says that's when a deputy fired a taser at him.
