Statement in Nunez's Death Expected By Tuesday

The Lubbock County Medical Examiner's office plans on releasing a statement by Tuesday in the death of Juan Manuel Nunez III. The 27-year-old died Sunday night after being tased by police.

NewsChannel 11 has been waiting on autopsy reports to determine what killed Nunez. Officers say they responded to 4402 Jarvis around 11:00 p.m. to a 911 hang up call. Police say Nunez was involved in a domestic dispute with another family member. Police reports say Nunez's actions required officer Matt Doherty to use his taser and call for back-up.

Family members say Nunez was inside the house when he was tased. They say he fell and hit his head. Nunez was pronounced dead at University Medical Center.

Officer Doherty is not on administrative leave.
