Armed man tasered by Elbert County Sheriff’s deputy Thursday dies.

A man died Thursday night after being tasered by an Elbert County sheriffs’ deputy.

Deputies responded to a 911 call at a residence and encountered a man who was armed with a gun, according to a district attorney’s news release.

A deputy used the less-lethal means of force, tasering the armed man, who subsequently died. The name of the armed man was not released. The address that deputies responded to was withheld Friday.

No deputies fired guns during the incident, the Friday night release said. The release did not say whether the armed man fired. Other information, including who made the 911 call and why, was not released.

Authorities did not say whether the man was taken to a hospital or whether he died at the scene. The cause and manner of death will be determined by the coroner’s office.

The fatal incident is being investigated by the 18th Judicial District.
