IMPD identifies shoplifting suspect who died in police custody.

Terrell Day, 18, of Indianapolis died in the back of an ambulance Saturday after being arrested by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and Cumberland Police Department, police said Sunday. Authorities in Indianapolis are investigating the death of a shoplifting suspect who died in an ambulance after twice reporting breathing problems following his arrest, police said. IMPD says a loss prevention officer confronted a man suspected of shoplifting at the Burlington Coat Factory store in Washington Square Mall around 1 p.m.

Police officers from Indianapolis and the police department of Cumberland, Indiana, took the man into custody without incident moments later but he then reported having trouble breathing, police said. Officers were called to a clothing store on the city’s far east side after a loss-prevention officer reported that a man accused of shoplifting had pointed a handgun and fled from the business.

An ambulance was called and a medical services technician determined that the man could be transported via jail wagon to an arrest processing center, police said. Duck boat in fatal crash lacked repair, official says: The National Transportation Safety Board said a duck boat involved in a fatal crash in Seattle did not have an axle repair that was recommended in 2013 for the amphibious vehicle. NTSB member Earl Weener said Sunday that investigators only recently learned that Ride the Ducks International issued a warning about potential axle failure and recommended a specific repair. Arrest in fatal California shooting rampage: Police on Sunday identified the suspect arrested in the shooting deaths of two people in an apparently random rampage in the Southern California city of Banning.

James Paul Diaz, 34, of Hemet was arrested and booked for investigation of two counts of murder, one count of attempted murder and other charges involving Saturday’s shooting spree, police said in a statement. Bland had told officials who processed her arrest that she had previously attempted suicide. “The Indianapolis EMS family would like to extend our sincere condolences,” IEMS Chief Charles Miramonti said in the police report. “We have already launched a full internal investigation and at this time are confident the highest level of response and care was provided.” Homicide detectives and the IMPD Crime Lab have conducted interviews and processed the scene, but the final cause of death will be determined by the Marion County Coroner’s Office. Authorities on Saturday responded to reports of gunfire in a string of incidents in the city near Palm Springs, Calif., that killed two people and injured three, including a shooting that killed a driver and injured a passenger; a car-to-car shooting that caused a minor injury; and an assault at a gas station.
